Understanding Bank Fraud
Bank fraud can sometimes be mistaken for bank robbery because it involves wrongfully taking property, assets, or money from a bank or another type of financial institution. However, these two crimes are not identical. Bank fraud is often committed over time or in another way that allows the loss of money to go unnoticed by its owners. In the United States, this is a federal criminal offense.
