Fraud Attorneys in Warminster, PA
Helping You Seek the Justice You Deserve
If you or a loved one were a victim in a fraud case, you may be entitled to monetary recovery. While the criminal courts will most likely end up prosecuting the fraud and consequently securing restitution for the victim, this does not always cover certain damages that you, as the victim, has undergone. By contacting a Warminster civil litigation attorney, you can pursue your claims to the money you are due for, in some cases, medical expenses, lost income, and other forms of relief available.
At McCullough Eisenberg, our goal has always been to help people recover from difficult situations. After 50 years of experience in helping people through bankruptcy, personal injury, fraud cases, and more, we have developed a reputation as a compassionate, attentive, and honorable Pennsylvania law firm.

What Constitutes Fraud?
According to Pennsylvania statutes, fraud is when one person intentionally makes a misleading or misrepresented material fact to another person, who acts in reliance on that misrepresentation and suffers legal harm or damage as a result. In layman’s terms, fraud is an intentional deception that ends up taking away someone else’s money, property, or legal right.
Fraud may take a number of forms. Some common examples of fraud include:
- Identity theft
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Mail fraud
- Tax evasion
- Security fraud
What to Do in a Fraud Situation
Fraud is a punishable crime. If you find yourself in a situation where someone stole your identity, embezzled you, or stole your credit card and used it without permission, call the police. Be prepared to offer up as much evidence, such as bank statements and other documents, as possible. That evidence will aid the prosecution in the criminal trial.
If the fraudulent behavior ended up costing you damages, you are entitled to recovery for those damages according to Pennsylvania civil tort laws. It is important that you contact a Warminster fraud attorney to help you pursue your civil claims.
