Wire fraud involves using electronic, interstate communication or other forms of wired technology to make false claims or otherwise defraud another person or entity of items of value. One of the most common forms of wire fraud often involves using cell phones or text messaging to sell misrepresented goods or make plans for other fraudulent activities.
Penalties for wire fraud could mean up to 20 years imprisonment and substantial fines. The most serious crimes involving defrauding a financial institution can carry up to 30 years imprisonment and fines of up to $1,000,000. You have no time to waste if you are facing charges! Weintraub & Alper Legal. is ready to handle your case and advocate for your rights.
Types of Wire Fraud Cases
To convict a person of wire fraud, it must be proven that there was intent to defraud or deprive the other person of money or valuable items. Even if no actual exchange of goods or services occurred between the seller and the alleged victim, you can still be charged. Defending these cases can be complicated, which is why you want a lawyer who knows how to provide thorough representation.
Here are some examples of possible defense strategies:
- You acted in good faith and had no intention to defraud
- You were simply using persuasive sales tactics
- You had no idea that the actions constituted a fraudulent act
- Litigation began past the statute of limitations
