Mail and wire fraud are federal crimes in the United States that involve a scheme to deprive the victims of money or property through the use of the mail or wire communication systems. Each instance of using the mail or wire systems to commit fraud is considered a separate offense and may be charged separately. Wire fraud or mail fraud scams often involve land sale, advertising, insurance, or fake charity scams.
In order to prove wire fraud or mail fraud, the prosecutor must prove that the defendant both knowingly devised the fraud scheme and also knowingly transmitted the information to facilitate the execution of the scheme. Wire fraud attorney Zachary C. Holbrook, P.C. is experienced in defending wire fraud clients by making it difficult for the prosecution to prove the intention of the wire or mail communication. In addition to creating an aggressive defense, he also facilitates plea bargains, settlements, reduced or dropped charges, reduced sentencing, and the right to a fair trial.
