Wire Fraud And Mail Fraud Basics
Wire fraud and mail fraud are similar crimes. The main difference is the method by which the party committing the fraud communicates with the victim. Mail fraud refers to using the U.S. Postal Service or a private carrier like UPS to obtain another party’s property under false pretenses or to sell or distribute counterfeit items. Wire fraud accomplishes the same thing using telephones, the internet, radio, television or other forms of “wired” communication.
As with other federal crimes, wire and mail fraud each carry the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence if you are convicted of even a single charge. As your attorney, Stephen Misko will investigate the claims against you and carefully examine the evidence.
