      The most commonly prosecuted fraud offence is contained within s192E of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) and involves either obtaining property or financial advantage from someone else or causing a financial disadvantage to someone else. The Police also need to prove that these actions were done either dishonestly or by deception.

      We specialise in defending against fraud allegations and have an unmatched record of our clients avoiding criminal convictions and jail. See our recent results for fraud offences.

      Some of these recent fraud cases include:

      • obtaining a ‘not guilty’ verdict at trial for fraud charges totalling in excess of $3 million;
      • no jail for a $1 million fraud scheme in the construction industry;
      • no jail for a $600,000 bank fraud by a bank employee.

      With increases in the use of technology in our day to day lives there are more and more ways that fraud can be committed. Frauds can involve the use of things like computers, teller machines, and skimming devices.

      Fraud offences can be very complex as most of the evidence is usually made up of lengthy financial records and statements.

      If you are under investigation or have been arrested or charged with fraud you should contact us for expert advice immediately.

      The sentencing statistics for fraud show that approximately 24% of persons found guilty to fraud offences received a sentence of full time imprisonment. This is unsurprising. If a fraudulent or deceptive offence causes a person or a company a loss of $100,000 or more, there is a strong likelihood that a jail sentence will be imposed.

      However, this outcome is not inevitable. Astor Legal are led by an accredited specialist in criminal law. We have beat countless fraud offences over the years and had numerous clients avoid gaol. We know the law, the cases, and the defences to fraud charges. Your first consultation is free and we offer fixed fees for most of our services.
