Mail and wire fraud are catch-all terms that allow prosecutors to broaden charges against you. If someone cheats in a card game, prosecutors will have trouble proving the details of the deception. But if the cheating occurs by post, it becomes mail fraud. If the act of fraud involves use of the phone or online media, that's wire fraud. Law enforcement and prosecutors love to use wire and mail fraud to beef up otherwise weak charges because it's much easier to gain convictions for these charges.
We Defend Against A Host Of White Collar Crime Charges
These are just a few of the state and federal crimes that can be enhanced with mail or wire fraud charges:
- Stock fraud
- Online auction fraud
- Car and truck sales
- Phony charitable fundraising
- Stealing Social Security checks from a mailbox
- False employment offers
The list is endless because it includes any act of fraudulent intent. Interstate mail fraud can involve either the U.S. Postal Service or private carriers such as UPS and FedEx. Wire fraud can involve the telephone, the Internet, email or broadcast media. We have handled dozens of these cases and we always effectively challenge these charges, resulting in the best possible outcome for our clients.
