What Is Bankruptcy Fraud?

Falsifying information on a bankruptcy filing is a common form of bankruptcy fraud. Bankruptcy fraud may also be committed when one files for their petition while engaging in any of the following methods:

  • Concealing assets
  • Improperly filling out forms and making false declarations
  • Multiple filings under different names
  • Attempted bribery of officials
  • Charging up cards or other debts prior to filing
  • Transferring assets to others prior to filing

Anyone who attempts to alter the amount of their assets by using another person’s name or by paying someone to hold on to their assets may be found guilty of banking, or bankruptcy, fraud. Furthermore, using misleading information can be construed as perjury, another federal crime.
