Wire Fraud Convictions Carry Harsh Consequences

In a wire fraud case, prosecutors must prove that you used electronic communications with the intent to defraud people out of their property or money. Wire fraud is a grave crime in the United States. It can result from Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes and fake government communications.

Wire fraud can involve the use of various electronic communication devices, including:

  • Telephone
  • Text messages
  • Internet
  • Email
  • Radio
  • Television
  • Social media

Because it is charged as a felony, wire fraud can lead to harsh penalties that impact the rest of your life. The penalty depends on the severity of the crime, the number of victims and the amount of money or property defrauded. In serious cases, a conviction may result in up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
