Civil forfeiture can happen to anyone—all it takes is for law enforcement to contend that your property was involved in a crime.
Common examples of civil forfeiture include:
- Law enforcement seizing your car after someone else is arrested for DUI in your vehicle
- Having cash confiscated without being charged for any crime
- The IRS seizing your bank account in its entirety on the basis of “suspicious activity”
- Home forfeiture after someone else conducts suspected illegal activities
