Mail & Wire Fraud Defense Attorney in New York City

Count on Our White-Collar Crime Lawyer

Mail fraud and wire fraud are two common types of federal white-collar crimes. Federal prosecutors often tack on mail and wire fraud crimes to other fraud charges. Almost any fraudulent act — from bankruptcy fraud to tax fraud — can result in an additional mail or wire fraud charge. In fact, by simply using the United States Postal Service to mail something the government views as part of the alleged fraudulent conduct, you can be charged with mail fraud. The same is true if you used the telephone or email in a process the government has determined constitutes any form of fraud.

At the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C., we have successfully reached positive outcomes for clients facing serious and often complex federal charges throughout New York.

Mail Fraud

Fraud through the mail is a common white-collar offense. This fraud, which is laid out in federal laws, involves a method to defraud someone of property or money via the United States Postal Service or a different mail carrier.

For example, mail fraud could involve "selling" property that does not exist to a person in another jurisdiction (outside the state) through the mail. This might be common with online purchases, for example.

Wire Fraud

Fraud through a wire is another common federal offense. This federal activity involves fraud executed using a wire, such as the radio or telephones. This crime is easier to execute because it is relatively comprehensive and can involve many different mediums.

The Underlying Fraud Charge

Mail and wire fraud are white-collar criminal offenses that can lead to serious consequences.

If convicted, you could be facing serious penalties such as:

  • Prison time
  • Heavy fines
  • A permanent criminal record that can prevent future job or educational opportunities

In many cases, our defense strategy involves attempting to separate the mail or wire fraud charges from the accusation of fraud. By seeking a dismissal of the mail or wire fraud charges, Mr. Bederow can focus his energy on defending against the original underlying fraud allegation.
