  • Mortgage Fraud - to inflate an appraisal, to claim false income assets, to falsely represent oneself as a borrower, etc.
  • Insurance Fraud - to defraud the insurance process, whether from the side of the insurer or the insuree.
  • Fraud Involving Senior Citizens - to scam, fool or act fraudulently against a senior citizen in order to benefit in some way, usually financially.
  • Financial Fraud - to act fraudulently for the purpose of financial gain - this can take many forms.

In California, fraud most commonly occurs when someone gains an unfair benefit to the detriment or harm of another person. A conviction for fraud can include long jail sentences and heavy fines and costs. Many fraud charges are considered "wobblers." A wobbler can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the person's past criminal record and the specific facts of the individual case. Although some fraud charges are automatically considered felonies, and not subject to being dropped down to a misdemeanor.

Additionally, many fraud charges may be charged as federal crimes.
