Los Angeles Wire Fraud Attorney

Charged with a wire fraud offense?

Wire Fraud is considered a serious crime under federal law. There are 2 major factors that determine if a crime is wire fraud:

  • One willfully devised or intended to devise a scheme or means to defraud another person of money or property with the intent to defraud.
  • They must do it through the use of interstate wire facilities, such as telephone, television, email or the Internet.

The penalties for wire fraud are stiff fines or imprisonment for up to 20 years, or both. However, if the violation affects a financial institution like a bank the fine can go as high as $1,000,000 or imprisonment up to 30 years, or both.
