Internet Fraud Laws in Texas

Posted On - January 18th, 2011 | By Tim Clancy | Category - Criminal Defense

Internet fraud is one of several types of internet crime that has grown steadily with the rapid improvement of technology, the increase of instantaneous communication over the web and the anonymity afforded by the use of false names and identities over the internet. If you have been charged with internet fraud or any other cyber-crime, the knowledge, skill and understanding of an experienced criminal defense lawyer, like the attorneys at Clancy & Clancy, can help you make your case and prove your innocence or successfully reduce or eliminate the jail time and fines that can be associated with a conviction.

What Is It?

There are many types of internet fraud: fraud in internet auctions, non-delivery of merchandise ordered over the internet, credit card fraud, investment fraud, and Nigerian or other foreign government scams. Federal and state authorities recognize that these types of crime are on the rise, and they are cracking down on violators. An experienced criminal defense lawyer knows that there are many opportunities and potential weaknesses in the prosecution’s case that can be used to win a not guilty verdict or to reduce or eliminate the jail time, fines and other consequences of internet fraud charges. But it takes the aggressive, innovative attitude of lawyers like those at Clancy & Clancy to formulate new defenses for rapidly developing areas of criminal law such as internet fraud.
