What Constitutes the Crimes of Wire Fraud and Mail Fraud?

Investigations and Fraud File

Wire fraud is a very commonly charged Federal crime. Wire fraud exists when someone uses interstate wire, radio, or television communications to carry out a scheme to defraud someone else. A Federal charge of wire fraud is an extremely serious matter. The punishment upon conviction of wire fraud is serious with a potential penalty of up to twenty years in custody. Circumstantial evidence is often used to convict, and the prosecutor will attempt to prove that a material misrepresentation or omission or concealment of an important fact shows guilty conduct.

It is a Federal crime to use the mail or a private interstate mail carrier such as FedEx or UPS in furtherance of a scheme to defraud or to obtain money or property by means of false or fraudulent representations or promises. Frequently, prosecutors charge each mailing in furtherance of the fraud as a separate offense.
