Using a United States Postal office or other mail service to unlawfully acquire money or other properties is considered mail fraud. This is a common crime and can carry several years in prison, steep fines, and other serious consequences. Fraud involving very large corporations and other prominent entities could enhance the sentence and make penalties even more severe.
Cases of mail fraud can be very complicated, as there may multiple parties involved, such as the USPS or any alleged victims. You will need an attorney with specific knowledge on how to appropriately handle your case. Lead Attorney, Howard J. Weintraub, has had experience as a former federal prosecutor in Washington D.C. Because of this, we know how the other side of the courtroom prepares their cases and can use this to your advantage when it comes to defending your case.
