In short, the federal offense of wire fraud is using interstate wire communication to defraud another individual of their money or property. That could be using the telephone, western union, the internet or any other electronic form of communication that crosses state borders.

Some of the most common forms of computer wire fraud include:

  • E-mail scams
  • Phishing
  • Identity fraud
  • Phone
  • Television

Because wire fraud is considered to be a federal crime, it is important to obtain legal representation from a Denver criminal defense attorney that is experienced in federal courts.

The Four Elements of Wire Fraud

In order to successfully prove that the accused is guilty of wire fraud, the prosecution must demonstrate that four different elements of the crime were present. As a skilled wire fraud defense attorney, I can help by fighting back against these accusations, and work to show that your actions did not meet these criteria.

By definition, these four elements must be present to warrant a conviction of wire fraud:

  • The defendant devised or intended to devise any scheme to defraud or obtain money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises
  • The defendant acted with the specific intent to defraud or obtain money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises
  • The defendant used interstate or foreign wire communications facilities or caused another person to use interstate or foreign wire communications facilities for the purpose of carrying out the scheme
  • The scheme employed false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises that were material

Wire fraud is a felony, and due to its status as a federal crime, it carries severe penalties. Each individual act of wire fraud is counted as a separate offense, which can land you 20 years or more in prison in addition to large fines for each count.
