Dallas Mail Fraud Attorney
Mail Fraud Defense in Dallas, Texas
Mail fraud is a criminal offense that is usually categorized as a theft crime or a white collar crime. It occurs when a person or people attempt to defraud the United States Postal Service through misrepresentation, schemes and deception. Mail fraud is committed when individuals intentionally devise a plan to defraud individuals for the purpose of obtaining money or valuables via the use of U.S. mail or the services provided by the U.S. Postal Services.
Anytime it is believed that individuals are using the Postal Service to carry out illegal activities, the United States Attorney’s Office will investigate the unlawful activities and seek to obtain a court ordered document (indictment) so that they can formally charge the individual with mail fraud.
People who have been charged with mail fraud may not only be prosecuted by the state in which they are committing the crime, but also by federal agencies. Mail fraud suspects will be subjected to intensive investigations that are likely to carry on for months. Once prosecutors have compiled enough evidence against suspected individuals, they will move quickly to prosecute the individuals and to obtain a conviction. Mail fraud convictions are no laughing matter as the penalties associated with these types of convictions include imprisonment, fines, restitution, community service and years of probation.
