Types of Bankruptcy Fraud
- Concealment of assets is the most common form of bankruptcy fraud, and this occurs when an individual intentionally hides property or assets from bankruptcy proceedings in order to avoid their liquidation or inclusion in the bankruptcy process.
- In today’s economy, petition mills are becoming more common. In these situations, individuals commit bankruptcy fraud by making false promises to debtors to handle their debt. The offender may file for bankruptcy without the debtor knowing it, may take the debtor’s money and then fail to keep their promise of handling their debt during bankruptcy proceedings, or otherwise defraud the individual.
- Multiple filings are another way an individual or company may commit bankruptcy fraud. In these cases the person/company files for bankruptcy in more than one state. This may include the offender’s actual information or false information and is often combined with the concealment of assets.
