Generally speaking, bankruptcy fraud involves withholding or hiding asset information or incorrectly reporting income or expenses while declaring bankruptcy. People and businesses may try this because they fear that their claim will be denied if everything is disclosed accurately. In the long run, it is best to be as accurate as possible.
Despite a lot of recent media attention, large corporations are not the only entities perpetrating this kind of fraud, nor are they necessarily the main offenders. People from all economic strata have also “juggled their books” to make their situation seem worse than it really is in order to avoid paying their creditors.
