Mail fraud is any effort or attempt to illegally or deceitfully obtain money or other items by using the United States Postal Service. Mail fraud is punished harshly, with a maximum fine of up to $1 million. Individuals can face a maximum prison sentence of up to 30 years depending on the severity of the offense. The amount of money involved can lead to different penalties for defendants. If a larger amount of money is at stake, the punishment is generally higher.
Wire fraud occurs when a person knowingly and willingly devises a scheme to defraud or obtain money or property by means of false pretenses, representations or promises. In order to effectively convict a person of wire fraud, the person must knowingly transmit something for the purpose of executing the scheme to defraud by wire in interstate commerce. If you are charged with wire fraud, you want someone who is familiar with this crime to defend you.
