Pittsburgh Mail & Wire Fraud Lawyer
Mail and wire fraud are often described as “add-on” criminal offenses, since the underlying charges typically involve some other type of criminal offense, such as theft. In other words, the mail or wire fraud involves the means to commit the theft; usually electronically, such as over credit card lines, or digitally through the Internet. As a practical matter, most charges of wire or mail fraud are investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service or involve interstate commerce and, consequently, are prosecuted in federal criminal court, where approximately 90% of cases result in convictions with more severe penalties. However, in certain cases a federal referral may be declined, with the result that the charges are prosecuted by a local Office of the District Attorney or the State Attorney General.
