Types of Bankruptcy Fraud in Florida

There are many forms of bankruptcy fraud, but all include the same basic intent of the offender: to intentionally avoid disclosure of or misrepresent assets and money when filing for bankruptcy. This may be done in an effort to avoid the payment of debts or to save remaining assets. Forms of bankruptcy fraud include:

  • Concealment of assets (property or money)
  • Multiple filings (filing for bankruptcy in more than one state)
  • Providing incorrect information regarding assets
