Miami Mail Fraud Attorney

Any fraud that uses mail — whether it originates in the mail, by phone, or online — is considered mail fraud. It does not have to go through the U.S Postal Service. Congress expanded the crime of mail fraud to include FedEx, UPS, and other private or commercial interstate carriers. Mail fraud is a scheme that impacts people of all ages, especially seniors. Because of this, those who engage in this crime are punished severely. 

In order to convict someone of mail fraud, the prosecution has the prove two key elements:

  1. Having devised or intending to devise a scheme to defraud (or to perform specified fraudulent acts)
  2. The use of the mail for the purpose of executing, or attempting to execute, the scheme (or specified fraudulent acts).

Mail fraud can result in a lot of stiff penalties. Contact Asilia Law Firm to get the help you need to fight these charges. Schedule a consultation with an experienced Miami mail fraud attorney today.

Types of Mail Fraud

Mail fraud can occur in many ways. Here are some common types:

  • Lottery/sweepstakes scams. This involves fraudulent notifications claiming that the recipient has won a lottery or sweepstakes. They typically ask for personal information or money to claim the prize.
  • Phishing scams. Fraudsters send emails or letters posing as legitimate organizations such as banks or government agencies, to trick recipients into providing sensitive information like passwords, credit card numbers, or Social Security numbers.
  • Pyramid schemes. Participants are promised high returns for recruiting others to join the scheme. Typically, the initial recruits make money by recruiting others, but those at the bottom of the pyramid lose their investments.
  • Charity scams. Fraudsters pose as charitable organizations, especially during times of natural disasters or emergencies, and solicit donations by mail. However, the funds collected may not go to legitimate causes.
  • Investment fraud. Perpetrators offer fraudulent investment opportunities through the mail, promising high returns with little or no risk.
  • Work-from-home scams. Individuals receive offers through the mail promising easy work-from-home opportunities with high pay. These schemes often require upfront fees or personal information.
  • Healthcare fraud. Scammers send mailings offering fake health products, treatments, or medical insurance plans that claim to provide miraculous results or coverage but are ineffective or non-existent.
  • Identity theft. Criminals steal credit card statements, bank statements, or pre-approved credit card offers to commit identity theft and financial fraud.
