Because the United States Postal Service (USPS) is a federally funded organization, and because these crimes often involve operations across state lines, mail and wire fraud receive federal crime classification. A federal crime often results in a more severe punishment, including years of imprisonment and high fines.

Whether It’s Wire Or Mail Fraud, Your Future Is In Jeopardy

Mail fraud and wire fraud may seem similar in their goals and deceptive strategy, but they differ at their core:

  • Wire fraud is the attempt to defraud an individual or group through electronic communication and other related mediums
  • Mail fraud is the attempt to defraud an individual or group by way of mail carriers such as the USPS.

You may face mail fraud charges even in the case where the fraud was unsuccessful. Know also that, to successfully convict you, prosecutors must prove you intended to defraud someone. This makes it all the more imperative that you connect with an attorney who knows the ropes.
