In addition to DUI and assault, a common criminal charge is fraud.
Most fraud charges relate to credit card scams or writing bad cheques. There are 2 criminal charges for fraud; fraud under $5000 which is considered a summary offence and fraud over $5000 which is considered an indictable offence.
You are eligible for a Canada Pardon if you have served your punishment and paid any outstanding restitution. You must be out of trouble for 3 or 5 years from the end of your punishment depending on whether the charge was summary or indictable.
We receive many thank you letters from people we have helped to obtain a Canada Pardon. Here is a letter from a person who was granted a Pardon for a fraud under $5000 charge:
“I was under the shadow of the fraud conviction for a long time and did not know how to go about removing my criminal record.”
“Finally I got the courage one day to call the local police and they thankfully referred me to Pardons Canada.”
“Now I truly feel liberated and have nothing to hide, especially when looking for employment.”
“Thanks again Pardons Canada for your great efforts. Its really appreciated.”
