Mail fraud is a serious federal crime that involves using the United States Postal Service to defraud others out of money, property or services. First enacted in 1872, the law has since been expanded to include radio, television, the internet and private carriers such as UPS and Federal Express. A conviction can carry fines and prison terms of up to five years for each count. If a financial institution is involved in the scheme, penalties increase to up to 30 years in prison and up to $1 million in fines.

With the stakes so high, hiring an experienced legal team to defend you is an absolute must. Mail fraud cases can get quite complicated. They typically involve a number of parties, including the defendant or defendants, the delivery service, and the alleged victim or victims. Depending on the complexity, a mail fraud case can take years to investigate and bring to trial. Moreover, prosecutors will rarely file suit unless they think their chances of victory are advantageous.
The defense typically centers on intent.
