Mail fraud accusations can arise from a variety of scenarios. You can be charged with mail fraud based on circumstances that are seemingly unrelated to the U.S. Postal Service, as long as mail was used in furtherance of the scheme. Many smaller criminal offenses are elevated to federal mail fraud cases simply on the basis that at some time the mail service was used during the criminal activity. For example, prosecutors may charge that you intentionally made a misrepresentation and used the mail service to carry out the associated crime.
Wire fraud is similar to mail fraud, except instead of using the mail service to further criminal activity, it involves the use of the Internet or a telephone or fax machine or other types of wire communication in furtherance of a white collar crime or other criminality.
