Federal Wire Fraud Defense
The name “wire fraud” may seem pretty confusing, but the concept is pretty simple, albeit broad. The law defines wire fraud as trying to scheme or defraud others out of money or property under false pretenses by means of electronic communications, or, “wires.” Because the internet is so wide, wire fraud generally involves “interstate” matters making it a federal crime. If you’re charged with wire fraud, you could be looking at enormous fines, incarceration time of up to 20 years, or both. South Carolina takes these cases very seriously, meaning you should immediately hire an experienced South Carolina Federal Wire Fraud Attorney who can handle cases involving:
- Fraudulent insurance claims
- Bond issuances and investment schemes
- Falsifying loan applications
- Check fraud schemes
- Bribes or kickbacks
