Title 18, Section 2113(a) of U.S. Code, describes Federal bank robbery as the following: "Whoever, by force and violence, or by intimidation, takes, or attempts to take, from the person or presence of another, or obtains or attempts to obtain by extortion any property or money or any other thing of value belonging to, or in the care, custody, control, management, or possession of, any bank, credit union, or any savings and loan association…shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both."
Like bank robbery, bank fraud is a crime for which the guilty party can be penalized with very harsh consequences. Listed below are examples of bank crimes that are harshly punished in California:
- Assuming a false identity
- Deceiving the bank
- Check fraud
- Forging signatures on checks
- ATM fraud
- Counterfeit checks
- Making a false statement for personal gain
In a situation where a person is a repeat offender, committing two or more similar felonies, he or she will most likely be given an additional monetary fine and an extended sentence if found guilty of a similar crime.
Being associated with bank fraud or bank robbery is also a crime, meaning that a person who did not commit the bank fraud/robbery, but assisted in some way or covered up the crime has violated the law and will be punished.
