@needhelp - I don’t believe it is impossible for you to obtain a security clearance, I believe it is unlikely. In the clearance world - 9 years is the magic length of time that forgives just about anything. The problem with your circumstance, as described, is that most agencies will likely consider your offense a direct nexus to most positions you are applying for that require a security clearance. Meaning someone with a felony fraud conviction, such as yourself, shouldn’t be working with classified or sensitive information, ever.
Let me give you an example - A guy I know, always wanted to be a police officer. He obtained his B.S. in criminal justice, was in great shape, etc… He had two problems - when he was 22 he got 2 DUI’s pretty much back to back. This guy is now 35 and never became a police officer, he applied to numerous agencies and always got the same - “thanks but no thanks” letter.
Would he have made a good police officer? Likely, however, no one wanted to take a chance hiring someone with that type of baggage. That is the unfortunate part of having a criminal record and applying for certain jobs with a local, state or federal government agency. Which is why I advise you to seek out other types of work outside of the government. You are like the guy trying to become a police officer with two DUI’s - no department is likely going to touch you.
Truly, I wish you the best, I’m not being hard on you - just frank. Again, best of luck.
