Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud

The Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud Statutes are the Most Expansive and Flexible Tools Available to Prosecutors in Dealing With Fraud Schemes

These statutes can be found at 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341 and 1343. Anyone who uses the United States Mail and/or sends wires or signals through interstate commerce in execution of a scheme to defraud can be prosecuted under these very broadly written statutes.

The typical wire fraud case involves either a wire transfer of funds from one state to another or using interstate wire telephone calls to execute a scheme. The mail fraud statute can involve sending letters through the U.S. Mail in furtherance of or in execution of a business scheme to defraud. The Department of Justice typically does not prosecute cases under these statutes unless the amounts of money are fairly significant.

Our attorneys have experience litigating under these statutes both as prosecutors and as defense attorneys. If you have been charged with mail and/or wire fraud, the attorneys at Finch McCranie LLP may be able to assist you in defending these charges. Please contact us today for a consultation.
