Fraud

Fraud is one of the most serious white collar crimes with which one can be charged. In Utah, fraud is defined as what happens when, “any person…has devised any scheme or artifice to defraud another or to obtain from another money, property, or anything of value by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, promises, or material omissions, and who communicates directly or indirectly with any person by any means for the purpose of executing or concealing the scheme or artifice.”
