What Is Mail And Wire Fraud?

What Is Wire Fraud And Mail Fraud?

Federal prosecutors often combine wire fraud and mail fraud with other financial fraud charges tied to bank fraud, tax avoidance, securities fraud and money laundering. Mail fraud specifically uses U.S. mail or private carriers in a scheme designed to defraud someone of money or property. Wire fraud, as the name implies, utilizes electronic communication – phone, email, fax – in a fraudulent scheme. Internet fraud and tax evasions schemes filing returns online are examples of wire fraud.
