NJ Wire Fraud Defense Lawyers

Discover the True Impact of Wire Fraud

Wire fraud is a sinister and deceptive crime that utilizes the internet, telecommunications, or electronic communication methods to defraud an innocent individual, resulting in immense emotional and financial damage to its victims. Common mediums for committing wire fraud include fax messages, phone calls, social media messages, text messages, and emails. This heinous crime is met with severe punishment, ranging from hefty fines to extended periods of incarceration.

Unraveling the Maze of Wire Fraud Elements

Federal prosecutors must prove four key elements to establish a case for wire fraud:

  1. The defendant deliberately devised a scheme to defraud someone of financial resources.
  2. The defendant succeeded in defrauding the victim.
  3. The use of interstate wire communications was willfully employed in executing the fraudulent scheme.
  4. Interstate wire communication effectively facilitated the execution of the fraud.

The Harsh Consequences of Wire Fraud Convictions

Nobody wants to find themselves on the receiving end of a wire fraud conviction. The penalties are severe and life-altering, encompassing exorbitant fines and lengthy prison sentences. Wire fraud is considered a federal crime and can land the perpetrator in prison for up to 20 years. Fines for individuals range up to $250,000, while businesses participating in wire fraud face even steeper fines, up to $500,000.

Wire fraud convictions come with a five-year Statute of Limitations. However, if a financial institution is implicated, the Statute of Limitation increases to a distressing 10 years.

Horrifying Examples of Wire Fraud in Action

Wire fraud takes many despicable forms, preying on unsuspecting victims and their hard-earned resources. Some notorious examples include:

  1. Nigerian Prince Scam – The scammer sends an email to an individual claiming they have inherited a significant sum of money, requesting their financial information to access it. In reality, the scammer drains the victim’s bank account.
  2. Telemarketing Fraud – Scammers often call unsuspecting targets, claiming they have won a prize. They solicit the victim’s personal information and use it to steal money and commit identity theft.

Standing Strong with Stellar Wire Fraud Defense Lawyers

Engaging a skilled and passionate wire fraud defense lawyer is imperative when facing accusations of wire fraud. There are numerous defenses available to minimize, refute, or completely dismantle the charges filed against you. Some of these powerful defenses include:

  1. Constructive Fraud – In order to prove fraud, prosecutors must demonstrate that the defendant intentionally devised a scheme to scam someone. If the defense can argue that there was no intent to commit fraud, then the charges may be dismissed.
  2. Good Faith or Lack of Intent – Similar to constructive fraud, if the defendant can establish that there was no intention to deceive, the charges may be dropped.
  3. Lack of Authority – This defense can be used in instances where executive, corporate, or ownership-level fraud is being alleged. Employees who commit fraud without their employer’s authorization could potentially use this defense.
  4. Lack of Purpose – Defendants must have used electronic communications to demonstrate their intent to commit fraud. If federal prosecutors cannot provide evidence of such communications, the charges will likely be dropped.
  5. Statute of Limitations – Charges cannot be filed after the designated Statute of Limitations has expired.
  6. Entrapment – If a government representative or police officer coerced a defendant into committing wire fraud through threats or illegal means, they can be relieved of the charges.
  7. Illegal Search and Seizure – Evidence obtained through illegal search and seizure methods may result in the case being dismissed.
