Prime Note Bank Fraud Defense

Prime Note Bank Fraud Defense

Prime note bank fraud is a financial scam and a white collar crime that is complex and may involve state, federal, and even international law enforcement agencies.

Prime Note Bank Fraud Defined

Prime note bank schemes “often claim investors’ funds will be used to purchase and trade ‘prime bank’ financial instruments on clandestine overseas markets in order to generate huge returns in which the investor will share.” However, neither the bank notes nor the trade market actually exist. This type of scheme is likely to include documents that appear official, complex, and sophisticated.

The person carrying out the fraud scheme claims to have access to prime notes that they can buy at a discount and sell at a premium. For example, in a prime note bank fraud case a person may be accused of creating a fictitious financial instrument involving an off-short account or foreign bank and promising investors a huge return on a low risk investment.

Prime note bank fraud has attracted significant international attention. These fraud schemes may also be called prime bank investment fraud, prime bank guarantees, high-yield trading, discounted U.S. Treasury Securities, or international monetary fund backed securities.
