If you have recently been served with a summons to court to answer charges of mail fraud, you should be aware that this is no laughing matter. Mail fraud is a serious Federal offense and carries with it significant penalties, including the possibility of heavy fines and potential prison time.
If you’re facing such charges, you’ll certainly need to hire a high powered legal firm to help you win your case. And if you’re going to fight the good fight, it’s a smart idea to hire upstate New York’s highest profile legal firm, Raiser & Kenniff.
What Is Mail Fraud? Can You Commit It Accidentally?
In a nutshell, anyone who uses the United States postal system (including such private carriers as FedEx, UPS, and the like) to engage in fraudulent behavior of any kind will run the risk of being charged with mail fraud. As noted above, depending on the severity of the fraud, the penalties can include the imposition of fines or prison time.
To qualify as mail fraud, the act must be committed with intention. In other words, you have to use the postal service in a way that can proven to be purposely malicious or fraudulent. You cannot unknowingly commit mail fraud.
For example, if a communication that you make through the mail causes someone to lose money through an investment tip that doesn’t pan out, this is not fraud. Of course, to prove mail fraud, a prosecutor is not necessarily required to prove that you communicated this information with intent to harm the recipient of your letter. The prosecutor will always build his or her case around the circumstances that surround the particular case.
