Providing Innovative, Effective Legal Solutions
Under federal laws, a transaction is fraudulent if it was induced via dishonest or deceptive acts or willful misrepresentations for the purpose of monetary gain. Because Internet, telephone and other forms of wire communication are commonly used to facilitate business, many individuals who have been accused of being involved in fraudulent transactions are charged with mail and wire fraud.
If you have been charged with mail or wire fraud, you are facing a serious federal criminal offense. Penalties for mail and wire fraud vary depending on the circumstances involved. Convictions typically carry high fines up to $250,000 and up to five years in prison. If federal securities or banks were involved, courts may impose greater punishments.
