Federal prosecutors and criminal investigators from various federal agencies have launched an active pursuit of possible PPP loan fraud and other CARES Act violations in an effort to recover money that may have been fraudulently obtained from coronavirus relief programs.
But what exactly is PPP loan fraud? It’s when an individual or business submits false information in an application or certification for a loan under the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The PPP was created to help companies stay afloat during the pandemic by providing forgivable loans to cover payroll and operating expenses.

Wire Fraud, Bank Fraud, False Statements to a Financial Institution, and Conspiracy to Commit Fraud are some of the criminal laws that may be involved in a PPP loan fraud case. The penalties for these crimes can range from 20 to 30 years in prison.
