Mail Fraud / Wire Fraud

The Catch-All Charge

Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud Attorneys: Representing Clients Across the U.S.

If you viewed the records of all people in prison for drug conspiracies, major fraud, corruption and other non-violent felonies, a surprising number would be convicted of nothing more than wire fraud or mail fraud.

In federal prosecutions, nearly everyone is charged with one or both of these offenses. It gives prosecutors a fallback if they can’t prove the primary charges, and the additional counts of wire and mail fraud provide leverage if they have to plead the case out.

The federal criminal defense lawyers at Boles Holmes White have a successful record in defending clients against mail and wire fraud charges. We work hard trying to get these charges dismissed to focus on the underlying allegations, and we know how to counter the basis for these charges when the government can’t make the rest of its case.

Our Birmingham, Alabama practice represents clients nationwide in white collar crimes and drug crimes. Attorney Jim Parkman is a 30-year veteran who has handled some of the biggest criminal cases in recent U.S. history.

Wire Fraud — Complex financial crimes often come down to how the money was moved. Wire fraud most often refers to electronic transfers of funds to bank accounts, to offshore entities or even by Western Union. More broadly, wire fraud applies to e-mails, phone calls, text messages or any electronic communication in the furtherance of a crime.

Mail Fraud — Anything sent by U.S. mail that can be connected to the alleged crime — financial statements, checks, forged documents, false Medicare invoices, drugs, a solicitation for a scam — could be charged as mail fraud.

A conviction for wire fraud or mail fraud carries a sentence of 5 to 20 years, or up to 30 years if a financial institution or federal agency was defrauded.
