Fraud is an intentional distortion of the truth in order to persuade you to part with something of value (usually money). When a consumer such as you purchases something, you expect it to perform as advertised. Fraud occurs when you were deceived or swindled about a particular product or service and our Florida fraud lawyers are here to help.
There are many types of fraud that are perpetrated, including:
- Automobile sale fraud
- Bait and switch
- Business fraud
