Defining Fraud Charges
Fraud is a form of deception and comes in many forms. Under Kansas state
law, different forms of fraud include:
Check fraud (K.S.A. § 21-5821 ): Making, drawing, issuing or delivering a check that is meant to defraud
is a class A nonperson misdemeanor for a check less than $1,000; a severity
level 9, nonperson felony for a check more than $1,000 but less than $25,000;
and a severity level 7, nonperson felony for a check more than $25,000
Making false information (K.S.A. § 21-5824 ): Making, generating, distributing or drawing any written instrument, electronic
data or entry in a book that is deceitful, with intent to defraud, is
a severity level 8, nonperson felony
Counterfeiting (K.S.A. § 21-5825 ): Manufacturing, using, displaying, advertising, distributing or possessing
with intent to distribute any item or services that bear or are identified
by a counterfeit mark is a class A misdemeanor if the retail value is
less than $1,000; a severity level 9, nonperson felony if the value is
at least $1,000 but less than $25,000; a severity level 7, nonperson felony
if the value is $25,000 or more
