Mail & Wire Fraud


Wire and Mail Fraud Defense

Mail and wire fraud charges are often brought against individuals who cannot be charged with other crimes due to a lack of evidence. Wire fraud prosecutions, in particular, have been and are applied to many alleged criminal activities. Prosecutors often use these statutes as a backdoor into criminal cases that would otherwise be difficult to prove. It is important to have an attorney who knows how to defend against mail fraud and wire fraud charges.

Mail and wire fraud examples

Prosecutors use federal mail and wire fraud statutes to bring charges for many crimes if the criminal activity was conducted through the U.S. mail, through private mail services or by electronic communication methods. A few examples of the scope of mail and wire fraud charges include:

  • Bank fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • Online auction or sale fraud
  • Impersonation
  • Fake charity solicitations
  • Theft from the mails
  • Work at home schemes

Prosecutors may be able to bring a wire fraud charge if the fraudulent scheme was discussed over the telephone. In short, these are broad statutes that are used in a variety of ways by prosecutors.
