Mail, Wire And Bank Fraud Attorneys in Miami
Providing Effective Legal Defense for Over Four Decades
Mail, wire, and bank fraud are often used by federal prosecutors because so little evidence is necessary for the government to obtain an indictment and a conviction on those charges. Contact our Miami fraud attorneys for more information. The statutes are very broad and encompass all sorts of acts.
Mail fraud is essentially any scheme to defraud or for obtaining money or property by fraudulent means, with the intent to do so, and the mailings or private carrier (such as FedEx or UPS) must be used in furtherance of the fraudulent scheme.
A fraudulent scheme is any artifice or scheme to obtain or to defraud property or money by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises. A reason that federal prosecutors charge mail fraud so often is that the mailing may be incident to an essential part of the scheme, but, nevertheless, is a crime by itself.
Wire fraud is a “catch-all” federal crime that federal prosecutors often charge. The definition and penalties of wire fraud are charged under Title 18 United States Code Section 1343. The essence of the crime of wire fraud is a scheme to defraud that involves transmittal in interstate or foreign commerce.
Very often, federal prosecutors charge mail fraud under Title 18 Section 341 of the United States Code even when the alleged criminal conduct is covered by another specific federal criminal statute, as part of the United States Code, where federal crimes are listed and defined.
The penalties for mail fraud can be severe. The maximum imprisonment upon conviction is 20 years’ imprisonment, along with a hefty fine. Of course, 20-year sentences are rarely given because the federal sentencing guidelines typically recommend shorter sentences, depending on the facts of the case and the amount of loss involved. When the mail fraud harms a financial institution or when the fraud relates to “a presidentially declared major disaster or emergency,” the potential penalty is increased to imprisonment of up to 30 years.
