More Bankruptcy Fraud – Massachusetts Debtors Beware

Bankruptcy Courts throughout the United States are vigilantly pursuing fraud by debtors who file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In a Nevada case, a man from California was indicted by the federal US Attorney there for bankruptcy fraud. Apparently, in 2005, the man filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition but failed to list a bank account he controlled with $100,000 in it.

The theme seems to be that some of these folks seem to believe that they can lie under oath in Chapter 7 bankruptcy and that the Federal Courts, with the powers of the US Trustee’s Office, will not find them.
