Fraud is a term for a broad range of criminal activities which use intentional deception for personal benefit or to damage others. Wire fraud is any crime of this type involving electronic communications.

Wire Fraud Charges

Wire fraud, unlike simple criminal fraud, is a federal crime. However, for fraudulent criminal activities to be termed wire fraud, they must conform to the following guidelines:

  • Must involve a scheme to defraud another person based on a misrepresentation
  • The scheme must be carried out with the intent to defraud
  • It must be carried out using some type of telecommunication

A person convicted of wire fraud faces significant fines and imprisonment for up to 20 years. However, if the fraud was committed against a financial institution, the prison sentence can be extended for up to 30 years.
