Representation Of Defendants In Wire Fraud And Mail Fraud Cases

Wire fraud and mail fraud are the ubiquitous, all-encompassing statutes that federal prosecutors use in economy crime cases. The statutes defining and governing wire fraud and mail fraud date back to the 1800s. Both involve sending communications and money by mail or over telephone wires or other similar technologies, including today's emails.

Know The Parameters

Understanding the definitions and scope of wire fraud and mail fraud is an important step along the road to a successful defense in the face of criminal charges including either type of fraud. For example, is mailing an invoice for medical services potentially an example of mail fraud? In many cases, the answer is yes. This is why health care fraud charges are often accompanied by mail fraud charges. Likewise, money laundering and wire fraud charges often go hand in hand, as prosecutors allege that someone illegally transferred funds in connection with other illegal activity, such as drug trafficking or banking fraud.
