Las Vegas Mail Fraud Lawyer
What is mail fraud?
Fraudulent activity that uses the mail system to execute its purposes is referred to as mail fraud. Originally mail fraud covered only those schemes using some form of United States mail, but now mail fraud could be charged if the crime used any mailing service, including couriers, electronic mail or others. Any deceitful scheme or fraudulent activity using any mail service could result in federal charges. In many federal cases, mail fraud is added to other criminal charges when mail services of any type were used in the commission of the other offense.
Mail fraud is charged as a federal crime, which means the penalties may be significantly more serious.
