FRAUD BY CHECK

Fraud by check can be a serious charge, requiring the services of an esteemed Denver criminal defense lawyer.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with offering a false instrument for recording if the individual, with intent to defraud, and knowing he has insufficient funds, issues a check for the payment of services, wages, salary, commissions, labor, rent, money, property, or other thing of value. A person can also be charged with fraud by check if the individual opens a checking account, negotiable order of withdrawal account, or share draft account using false identification or an assumed name for the purpose of issuing fraudulent checks.
