Core Practice Areas
Fraudulent misrepresentation is a type of fraud where an individual or organization intentionally and deliberately makes a false statement or omits a material fact with the intention of inducing another party to act on the information. The misrepresentation must be material and reasonably relied upon by the victim, who must also have suffered damages as a result. This can include cases of financial fraud, where a person is intentionally misled about the value or risks of an investment, or cases of real estate fraud, where a seller intentionally misrepresents the condition or ownership of a property.
Business fraud is a type of fraud that is committed within a business context, such as by a corporation, employee, or agent. Business fraud can involve various types of deception, including fraudulent misrepresentation, embezzlement, false accounting, or the misappropriation of corporate assets. Business fraud can cause significant financial harm to individuals, investors, and other organizations.
Investment fraud is a type of fraud that involves an individual or organization misrepresenting or omitting key information related to an investment opportunity. This can include Ponzi schemes, securities fraud, and other investment scams. Investment fraud can cause significant financial losses to investors and can have far-reaching consequences on the wider economy.
Psychic, Spiritualist, and Divination Fraud
Psychic, spiritualist, and divination fraud is a type of fraud that is committed in a spiritual or religious context. This can involve an individual misrepresenting their psychic abilities, selling fake or ineffective spiritual products, or conducting fraudulent healing or exorcism sessions. These types of fraud can cause significant emotional harm to victims and can be particularly difficult to detect.
Relationship fraud, also known as romance scams, involves an individual or group of individuals using social media or online dating platforms to create a relationship with their victim. Once the victim has developed feelings for the fraudster, the fraudster will use various methods to extract money from the victim, such as by claiming to be in financial distress or by asking for gifts or other financial support. Relationship fraud can cause significant emotional and financial harm to victims and can be difficult to detect and prosecute.
