Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud

Bankruptcy fraud is a crime.  Common fraudulent or abusive acts under bankruptcy statutes include concealment of assets, concealment of documents, destruction of documents, false statements, conflicts of interest, fraudulent claims, and redistribution of assets arrangements.

Nearly two thirds of bankruptcy fraud involves the intentional non-disclosure of assets and cash in a bankruptcy petition. Schemes also include the hiding of assets, making of false statements, making multiple filings, undervaluing assets, forging petitions, use of petition mills that provide false information and making gifts or transferring assets immediately prior to or during bankruptcy. The penalties can be severe.  Bankruptcy fraud is a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Conviction for bankruptcy fraud can also invalidate your bankruptcy and allow your creditors to collect debts that were discharged by the bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy fraud has been used by individuals involved in all sorts of businesses. It's a favorite ploy of organized criminals and other con men. Consulting with legal counsel can provide information about legal rights, alternatives to bankruptcy and procedures that could keep many from crossing the line to criminal behavior.
