Mail Fraud

Mail fraud crimes can involve more than just the United States Postal Service. Crimes of this nature can also be committed through the use of other interstate carriers such as FedEx and UPS. According to federal law, a person must engage in some type of scheme to defraud another in order for the act to be considered mail fraud. Essentially, there must be an intent to defraud. If convicted of mail fraud, you could be facing prison, fines, probation, and/or restitution.

Wire Fraud

Wire fraud is similar to mail fraud but involves using electronic communication devices such as a telephone, computer, or the internet to defraud another person of their money or property.

In order to be convicted of wire fraud, prosecutors must prove:

  • You have deliberately taken part in a scheme to defraud another person
  • You conducted a scheme with the intent of defrauding someone else
  • It was foreseeable that wire communication would be used to commit the act of fraud
  • You used wire communications to commit the act of fraud
