If You Are Charged With Committing Fraud Through The Mail
Mail fraud charges – like wire fraud charges – are often added to other related charges, and these add-on charges deserve to be taken seriously. With extensive prison sentences and crippling fines among the possible punishments for a guilty verdict, it is important for you to work with an attorney who can defend you against these charges as well as the other charges you might face.

While we are based in Long Island, we have defended clients against white collar criminal charges with cutting-edge legal strategy. We will work with you to protect your rights and create the best possible defense for you.
Complex Charges That Come Alongside Other Crimes
Mail fraud comes in many forms, and it does not require the use of the postal service to be central to the fraud. It only requires that the postal service be used as a part of other crimes. Mail fraud charges could be leveled for something as simple as mailing envelopes that are related to these other criminal charges or receiving mailed money from alleged victims.
Charges are usually leveled for each mailing sent, and you could be charged in association with other criminal charges like:
- Drug crimes
- Identity theft
- Financial fraud like pyramid schemes
- Child pornography
- Credit card fraud
A guilty verdict could result in significant jail time, fines and other harsh punishments. This is why it is important to work with an attorney who has experience defending their clients from criminal charges on the federal level. An experienced lawyer knows how the case against you will be built and can use that knowledge to build a strong defense for you.
