Scheme to defraud is charged and punished under two subcategories: communications fraud, and organized fraud. Communications fraud occurs when any person uses electronic or written communications to further a scheme to defraud another person. Organized fraud occurs when the accused actually obtains property or funds from their scheme. It does not require them to have used communications technology.

Under Florida Statute 817.034, the crime Scheme to Defraud is committed when a person:

  • Engages in a systematic, ongoing course of conduct
  • With the intent to defraud or obtain property from one or more persons
  • By false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, promises, or willful misrepresentations of a future act

In order to sustain a charge of a scheme to defraud, the state must prove that the accused had the intent to defraud another person, and that they willfully misrepresented themselves to that individual.

This is a high bar for the state to meet. They must prove an intention, which requires hard evidence rather than conjecture. If you or a loved one have been charged with a scheme to defraud, it’s important that you contact an attorney immediately.

Act immediately. If you are in Miami call (305) 928-1669 now for more information. If you are in Broward County call 954-737-3004.
