For any White Collar Defense Attorney, defending people in San Fernando can be a tricky ordeal. White collar crimes have taken off in recent years, with the Internet making it easier for shady characters to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers. However, the law has come down in a harsh manner, even on people who were obeying the law in making a profit. A recent case in Santa Clarita showed just how vital it is to get a quality White Collar Defense Attorney in your corner if you are charged with a white collar crime in San Fernando.
A woman who was dubbed a "financial predator" from Santa Clarita after she allegedly conned almost $4 million from people to whom she allegedly promised low interest, multimillion dollar loans from the Federal Reserve Bank. That woman was sentenced to eight years in prison for her alleged actions. The case was handled in a United States District Courtroom in downtown Los Angeles. The woman was also ordered by the judge to pay more than $3.8 million in restitution! So far, the government has already taken more than a million dollars from the woman to repay her alleged victims. In January, the woman pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, one count of money laundering and one count of impersonating an employee of the Federal Reserve.
Some of the woman's crimes included offering loans as high as $20 million at fixed rates as low as 2. percent according to prosecutors. She asked for upfront payments, generally about 15 percent of the total loan amount. The woman allegedly defraud 14 victims, none of whom received a loan.
