Wire Fraud Allegations

As wire fraud is both a federal and state crime, it may be pursued by either the Federal Bureau of Investigation or a local law enforcement agency. When charges are filed against an individual for wire fraud, the experience can be frightening for how severe the consequences of conviction can be. In addition to any immediate consequences involving a wire fraud conviction—including and fines and prison time—the long-term professional and personal consequences of being a felon can be debilitating. As such, it is critical for individuals charged with wire fraud to secure experienced legal representation as soon as they learn of either an investigation pursued against them or after the formal filing of charges.

Mediums Used to Commit Wire Fraud

Understood as any attempt to defraud another for the purposes of obtaining property or money under false pretenses, promises, or representations, wire fraud must also have occurred through one of the following mediums:

  • Internet
  • Telephone
  • E-mail
  • Radio
  • Television

Since information networks are likely to extend over one or more state lines, wire fraud may be prosecuted as a federal crime, especially when it affects any federally insured financial institution.
