Connecticut PPP and EIDL Loan Fraud Lawyers

Common Connecticut PPP and EIDL Fraud Offenses

There are a variety of ways that PPP and EIDL funds could be misused or obtained fraudulently. Some of the most common criminal offenses include:

  • Lying on loan applications about business revenue, number of employees, or other details
  • Using false documents or identities to apply for multiple loans
  • Failing to disclose other COVID relief funds received on applications
  • Using PPP funds for unauthorized personal expenses instead of payroll
  • Transferring EIDL funds to personal accounts for non-business use
  • Colluding with others to submit fraudulent loan applications and split proceeds

There have been several high-profile PPP and EIDL fraud cases prosecuted in Connecticut already. For example, a couple in Oxford was accused of misspending over $100,000 in PPP and EIDL funds on unauthorized purchases like luxury items and cryptocurrency [5]. Another case involved two individuals from New Haven and Hartford allegedly involved in a scheme with several others to submit fraudulent loan applications using fake “faith-based” non-profits [6].

Penalties for PPP and EIDL Fraud in Connecticut

PPP and EIDL fraud can lead to both civil and criminal penalties at the federal level. Even if you mistakenly misused funds or were unaware of program rules, you could still face consequences.

On the criminal side, charges may include wire fraud, bank fraud, false statements, aggravated identity theft, and money laundering. Penalties can include:

  • Up to 30 years imprisonment
  • Fines up to $1 million
  • Restitution of misused funds
  • Forfeiture of assets

The DOJ and federal prosecutors tend to pursue jail time in egregious cases where large sums were obtained fraudulently. They want to send a strong warning to deter this type of crime.

Civil consequences through the SBA can include:

  • Repayment of all loan funds
  • Being barred from receiving future SBA loans
  • Debarment from federal contracts
  • Civil monetary penalties

Your lender may also file a civil lawsuit to recoup misused loan proceeds. It is possible to negotiate settlements in civil PPP and EIDL fraud cases to avoid harsher criminal penalties.
