● Accounting fraud – An example of accounting fraud is “cooking the books” to make it appear as though you or a company have more money. The person may use the doctored accounting records to apply for bank loans.
● Fraudulent loans – This involves presenting false or fictitious information to the bank and may or may not involve a dishonest bank employee. The false or fictitious information is used to obtain the loan which is not repaid.
