Mail Fraud Charges
Mail Fraud is an extremely common charge in federal courts. The statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1341, is very broadly written, and a common joke among defense attorneys is that there is no one who has ever lived in the United States and has not committed mail fraud. Wire fraud and bank fraud are commonly charged along with mail fraud.
There are two essential elements to mail and wire fraud:
- Use of mails or interstate wires for the purpose of a fraudulent scheme
- Devise or intend to devise a fraudulent scheme
