Accused of Fraud, North Carolina Man Turns Self In

Running a business is often complicated. Though many businesses in North Carolina find themselves struggling, they make the difficult decisions that will ensure that the needs of the company are met while fulfilling the company's financial obligations. Unfortunately, police believe that one man resorted to fraud in many of his business dealings.

The 52-year-old man recently turned himself into authorities. Reports indicate that an investigation was conducted, allegedly revealing that he had defrauded businesses and individual workers of over $450,000. Police say that businesses and workers had provided the man's business with services for which he in return failed to pay.

In fact, police say that he paid with fraudulent checks, resulting in losses for the victims. Authorities say that there may be other victims across the state and are asking anyone else who may be one to contact them. The man now faces multiple charges, including forgery of an instrument and obtaining property by false pretense.

Unfortunately, fraud charges are often complicated, and those who face them may not be able to fully understand the accusations against them. Additionally, a conviction can have serious consequences. As a result, many people in North Carolina facing such accusations often choose to ask for help from an experienced criminal defense attorney who can ensure that they are fully informed about their options and the potential outcomes of each. Often, just knowing that a knowledgeable professional is working on their behalf helps defendants feel less stress as they make the difficult decisions facing them.
