Wire Fraud Crime
Title 18 U.S.C.A. § 1343, states that:
Whoever, having devised or intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, transmits or causes to be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds for the purpose of executing such scheme or artifice, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both. If the violation occurs in relation to, or involving any benefit authorized, transported, transmitted, transferred, disbursed, or paid in connection with, a presidentially declared major disaster or emergency, or affects a financial institution, such person shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both.
There are three elements to wire fraud:
- A “scheme or artifice to defraud” or the obtaining of property by fraud; and,
- A wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign commerce.
The elements of wire fraud under Section 1343 directly parallel those of the mail fraud statute but require the use of an interstate telephone call or electronic communication made in furtherance of the scheme.
Although these charges are not violent crimes, they are prosecuted very seriously. A Wire Fraud Crime conviction may make it difficult to obtain gainful employment and certain professional licenses.
