Bank fraud is prosecuted in federal court and covers a wide variety of conduct where a bank has lost money. A federal law punishes a person for making a false statement for the purposes of getting a bank loan. This includes intentionally providing false information in loan applications, such as inflated assets, non-disclosure of liabilities, false employment data or fictitious security for a loan. This conduct can also be prosecuted as a bank fraud if it is alleged that there was a scheme to defraud a bank, which can include any material misrepresentation made in an effort to obtain money or any unauthorized means to get money from a bank. A mortgage fraud involving a scheme to defraud a bank by a person acting with intent to defraud can be prosecuted as a bank fraud. An officer or employee of a bank, acting with criminal intent, can be prosecuted for misapplication (bad loans, nominee loans, check-kiting) or embezzlement of bank funds.
