Serious white collar criminal charges can stem from a seemingly friendly conversation with a federal agent. An experienced white collar criminal defense attorney can protect your rights if you are being questioned about committing an illegal activity.
At the Law Offices of Michael V. Cibella, LLC, we have more than 15 years of experience representing individuals in Manhattan, Midtown, Brooklyn and throughout New York charged with mail and wire fraud.
Mail Fraud Vs. Wire Fraud
Mail fraud is when an individual uses the U.S. mail system to exchange information related to an illegal activity. Wire fraud is when the Internet, cellular network or phone lines were used in the process of committing an illegal activity.
Do not talk to federal agents or the police. Even though you are not under oath, you can still be charged with a crime for lying to federal agents. Keep yourself protected by having a lawyer present before you speak to federal agents.
White Collar Offenses Tied To Mail Or Wire Fraud
Many individuals face other criminal charges in addition to the mail or wire fraud charges. Financial fraud and other white collar crimes often include mail or wire fraud charges. It is very important to understand your rights if you are being investigated by federal agents.
You may face mail or wire fraud charges in addition to a variety of other offenses, including the following white collar crimes:
- Fraud, including tax fraud, securities fraud, mortgage fraud, Medicare fraud and insurance fraud
- Embezzlement or money laundering
Agents will use varying tactics to obtain evidence to build a case against you. Evidence can include phone records and anything sent through email, fax or the mail.
