Mail Fraud vs Wire Fraud
Federal Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud Defense Attorney
Any fraudulent activity that involves any electronic communications can result in charges and penalties for wire fraud. This crime is codified at 18 U.S.C. § 1343 and under that statute a person could face 20 years in prison and be heavily fined! You need a wire fraud defense lawyer from NeJame Law to help you fight any charges against you.
Mail fraud is similar to wire fraud. Mail fraud involves an attempt to defraud someone by using the United States Postal Service or any other mail carrier. To be charged with mail fraud, an individual's use of the mail system to defraud must be intentional. Since mail fraud is a federal crime, a person that is charged with mail fraud can also face some very harsh penalties.
Mail and Wire Fraud Penalties
Both mail fraud, title 18 US code 1341, and wire fraud, title 18 US code 1343, carry a maximum 20 year sentence, depending upon the amount of loss caused by the scheme to defraud as well as other factors identified in the federal sentencing guidelines.
In the case of a loss to a financial institution or a scheme which impacts on a presidentially declared major disaster, the maximum penalty is increased from 20 years to 30 years.
