Understanding Bank Fraud

Bank fraud is an umbrella term for any sly scheme focused on swindling funds or assets from financial institutions under false pretenses. These are some usual tactics:

  • Check Fraud: Unlawfully tampering with or forging checks to siphon money from a bank account.
  • Identity Theft: Adopting another’s identity to raid their bank holdings or secure credit.
  • Wire Fraud: Crafty use of electronics to swindle individuals or banks for a financial windfall.
  • Loan Fraud: Using deceit or misrepresenting information to obtain loans under false pretenses.
  • Credit Card Fraud: Unauthorized transactions performed using someone else’s credit card details.

Tackling a bank fraud accusation involves dredging through financial dealings, documentation, and technical evidence. Our legal experts in West Virginia unpack these complexities and devise a defense meticulously cut to fit your situation.

The Stakes of Bank Fraud in West Virginia

A verdict of bank fraud in West Virginia carries dire and lasting ramifications:

  • Criminal Consequences: Jail time, hefty fines, or a combination of both could await those found guilty, with severity scaling up with the extent of the fraud committed.
  • Restitution: The courts might compel reimbursement to the bank to cover their monetary losses incurred by the fraud.
  • Probation: Some may face probation, necessitating adherence to certain set conditions and constraints.
  • Civil Legal Actions: On top of criminal consequences, there might be civil cases brought forth by the aggrieved banks for additional damage control.

Aware of every nuance related to West Virginia’s bank fraud litigation, we craft formidable defense strategies to significantly reduce your potential penalties.

Defending Against Bank Fraud Allegations

A sound defense in bank fraud cases leans heavily on vast insight into both state and federal statutes. Our seasoned legal battalion maps out tailored defenses grounded in the specifics of each singular case:

  • Intent Lacking: A pivotal argument is showing no plan to cheat the bank was present. Innocent missteps or clerical errors should not be misconstrued as attempted fraud.
  • Questionable Proof: Dismantling the prosecutor’s case piece by piece is often key. We pursue all avenues to unearth any flaws or questionable evidence that could swing the case in your favor.
  • Wrongly Identified: Should the identification of the defendant be the prosecution’s linchpin, proving mistaken identity can upend the case.
  • Investigative Flaws: Spotlighting missteps in the collection or handling of evidence may offer opportunities to contest evidence’s legitimacy or prompt case dismissal.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
