Former car dealer office manager pleads guilty to fraud

A woman who used to work as an office manager at a now-bankrupt Texas car dealer has admitted to obtaining floor plan funds by providing the Ford Motor Credit Company with false information. Floor plan is a form of credit auto dealers use to finance their inventories. Court papers reveal that the woman pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. A dozen former employees of the dealer group have admitted to fraud and could be sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay restitution of more than $25 million.

Preventing and resolving construction contract disputes

Construction contracts can reduce the likelihood that a dispute will arise during the construction process. A contract that is drawn up in Texas should clearly lay out dispute clauses. Other preventative measures would include significant planning before the work begins, negotiating clauses that could be problematic and making sure that schedules are realistic.

How can I defend myself against fraud?

Being accused of any type of fraud can be worryisome. No matter how confident you are that you are innocent, you still need to prove this to the courts. This is why a strong defense is necessary for all situations.
