North Carolina Mail Fraud Lawyers

Mail fraud is a federal criminal offense that involves using the United States Postal Service or a private carrier, such as FedEx or UPS, to carry out a fraudulent scheme. This can include using the mail system to send fraudulent documents, money or other items, or to make false representations or promises.

A conviction for this offense is very serious, and can result in criminal and civil penalties. In particular, a convicted person can face up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 or more, depending on the specifics of the case. In addition to imprisonment and fines, a conviction can result in paying mandatory restitution and the forfeiture of assets.

Mail fraud can take an unlimited number of different forms, and schemes can be very sophisticated. Some common types include:

  • Investment fraud: This type of fraud involves offering misleading investment opportunities through the mail, promising high returns on investments with little or no risk. The victims are often asked to send money by mail or wire transfer to invest in the opportunity.
  • False advertising: This type of fraud involves sending advertisements through the mail that make false or misleading claims about products or services.
  • Credit card fraud: This involves submitting a credit card application that contains misleading information about income or debts in order to obtain credit.
