Wire and mail fraud charges involve any crime that is committed using the U.S. mail, private mail carrier or some form of electronic communication. Although wire and mail fraud is considered a “white-collar” crime, a conviction for wire and mail fraud crimes carries significant penalties in and of itself and is often prosecuted at the federal level.

Additionally, wire and mail fraud charges are usually associated with other charges that may have been committed that underlie the offense via mail or wire. This could translate into additional severe penalties and prison sentences if convicted of both the wire and mail fraud crime and the underlying crime, including bank fraud, internet crimes, healthcare fraud, securities fraud, or identity theft. In certain circumstances, wire and mail fraud charges may be added in order to secure federal jurisdiction over your case.

Because of the evolving digital and cyber era we operate in, wire and mail fraud charges can be added to virtually any other type of fraud charge. Specific examples of mail or wire fraud may include making phone calls designed to obtain the personal information of the call recipient on false pretenses and for personal gain, sending mail that appears to be from a government agency, engaging in vacation scams offering low-cost rentals that do not exist, soliciting charitable donations on behalf of non-existent charities, and more.
The “scheme to defraud” element is interpreted broadly, encompassing almost any plan to obtain money, property or services by misrepresenting the facts, lying, providing false information or even omitting material facts. Because the wire and mail fraud statute is so broadly drafted, and equally broadly interpreted by the courts, it is especially important to get the advice of a skilled defense lawyer even if you believe the “scheme” that you are accused of being involved with was not serious enough to warrant prosecution.
