11 U.S.C. § 548 : US Code - Section 548: Fraudulent transfers and obligations

      (a)(1) The trustee may avoid any transfer (including any transfer
    to or for the benefit of an insider under an employment contract)
    of an interest of the debtor in property, or any obligation
    (including any obligation to or for the benefit of an insider under
    an employment contract) incurred by the debtor, that was made or
    incurred on or within 2 years before the date of the filing of the
    petition, if the debtor voluntarily or involuntarily - 
        (A) made such transfer or incurred such obligation with actual
      intent to hinder, delay, or defraud any entity to which the
      debtor was or became, on or after the date that such transfer was
      made or such obligation was incurred, indebted; or
        (B)(i) received less than a reasonably equivalent value in
      exchange for such transfer or obligation; and
        (ii)(I) was insolvent on the date that such transfer was made
      or such obligation was incurred, or became insolvent as a result
      of such transfer or obligation;
        (II) was engaged in business or a transaction, or was about to
      engage in business or a transaction, for which any property
      remaining with the debtor was an unreasonably small capital;
        (III) intended to incur, or believed that the debtor would
      incur, debts that would be beyond the debtor's ability to pay as
      such debts matured; or
        (IV) made such transfer to or for the benefit of an insider, or
      incurred such obligation to or for the benefit of an insider,
      under an employment contract and not in the ordinary course of
      business.

      (2) A transfer of a charitable contribution to a qualified
    religious or charitable entity or organization shall not be
    considered to be a transfer covered under paragraph (1)(B) in any
    case in which - 
        (A) the amount of that contribution does not exceed 15 percent
      of the gross annual income of the debtor for the year in which
      the transfer of the contribution is made; or
        (B) the contribution made by a debtor exceeded the percentage
      amount of gross annual income specified in subparagraph (A), if
      the transfer was consistent with the practices of the debtor in
      making charitable contributions.

      (b) The trustee of a partnership debtor may avoid any transfer of
    an interest of the debtor in property, or any obligation incurred
    by the debtor, that was made or incurred on or within 2 years
    before the date of the filing of the petition, to a general partner
    in the debtor, if the debtor was insolvent on the date such
    transfer was made or such obligation was incurred, or became
    insolvent as a result of such transfer or obligation.
      (c) Except to the extent that a transfer or obligation voidable
    under this section is voidable under section 544, 545, or 547 of
    this title, a transferee or obligee of such a transfer or
    obligation that takes for value and in good faith has a lien on or
    may retain any interest transferred or may enforce any obligation
    incurred, as the case may be, to the extent that such transferee or
    obligee gave value to the debtor in exchange for such transfer or
    obligation.
      (d)(1) For the purposes of this section, a transfer is made when
    such transfer is so perfected that a bona fide purchaser from the
    debtor against whom applicable law permits such transfer to be
    perfected cannot acquire an interest in the property transferred
    that is superior to the interest in such property of the
    transferee, but if such transfer is not so perfected before the
    commencement of the case, such transfer is made immediately before
    the date of the filing of the petition.
      (2) In this section - 
        (A) "value" means property, or satisfaction or securing of a
      present or antecedent debt of the debtor, but does not include an
      unperformed promise to furnish support to the debtor or to a
      relative of the debtor;
        (B) a commodity broker, forward contract merchant, stockbroker,
      financial institution, financial participant, or securities
      clearing agency that receives a margin payment, as defined in
      section 101, 741, or 761 of this title, or settlement payment, as
      defined in section 101 or 741 of this title, takes for value to
      the extent of such payment;
        (C) a repo participant or financial participant that receives a
      margin payment, as defined in section 741 or 761 of this title,
      or settlement payment, as defined in section 741 of this title,
      in connection with a repurchase agreement, takes for value to the
      extent of such payment;
        (D) a swap participant or financial participant that receives a
      transfer in connection with a swap agreement takes for value to
      the extent of such transfer; and
        (E) a master netting agreement participant that receives a
      transfer in connection with a master netting agreement or any
      individual contract covered thereby takes for value to the extent
      of such transfer, except that, with respect to a transfer under
      any individual contract covered thereby, to the extent that such
      master netting agreement participant otherwise did not take (or
      is otherwise not deemed to have taken) such transfer for value.

      (3) In this section, the term "charitable contribution" means a
    charitable contribution, as that term is defined in section 170(c)
    of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, if that contribution - 
        (A) is made by a natural person; and
        (B) consists of - 
          (i) a financial instrument (as that term is defined in
        section 731(c)(2)(C) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986); or
          (ii) cash.

      (4) In this section, the term "qualified religious or charitable
    entity or organization" means - 
        (A) an entity described in section 170(c)(1) of the Internal
      Revenue Code of 1986; or
        (B) an entity or organization described in section 170(c)(2) of
      the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

      (e)(1) In addition to any transfer that the trustee may otherwise
    avoid, the trustee may avoid any transfer of an interest of the
    debtor in property that was made on or within 10 years before the
    date of the filing of the petition, if - 
        (A) such transfer was made to a self-settled trust or similar
      device;
        (B) such transfer was by the debtor;
        (C) the debtor is a beneficiary of such trust or similar
      device; and
        (D) the debtor made such transfer with actual intent to hinder,
      delay, or defraud any entity to which the debtor was or became,
      on or after the date that such transfer was made, indebted.

      (2) For the purposes of this subsection, a transfer includes a
    transfer made in anticipation of any money judgment, settlement,
    civil penalty, equitable order, or criminal fine incurred by, or
    which the debtor believed would be incurred by - 
        (A) any violation of the securities laws (as defined in section
      3(a)(47) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C.
      78c(a)(47))), any State securities laws, or any regulation or
      order issued under Federal securities laws or State securities
      laws; or
        (B) fraud, deceit, or manipulation in a fiduciary capacity or
      in connection with the purchase or sale of any security
      registered under section 12 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange
      Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78l and 78o(d)) or under section 6 of the
      Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77f).
