Mail Fraud A Former Prosecutor & Military Judge Fighting For Your Freedom

Mail Fraud Defense Attorneys in Dallas

Fighting Tirelessly to Protect Your Legal Rights

In the most general sense, mail fraud is the use of the U.S. mail system—including both USPS and private mail carriers—to commit fraud, typically by defrauding others into sending money, property, or other benefits for the purpose of individual or collective gain. It also involves the exchange of counterfeits through the U.S. mail system. This can include things like pyramid schemes, Ponzi schemes, providing fraudulent college applications, and fraudulent sweepstakes. Like wire fraud, mail fraud is a federal offense but, rather than wire communications, mail fraud solely involves U.S. mail communications.

If you are accused of mail fraud, it is crucially important that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. At the Law Office of Patrick J. McLain, PLLC, our Dallas mail fraud lawyers have over 30 years of experience, including past experience as federal prosecutors. We understand how these charges are prosecuted and we know what it takes to aggressively defend you.

Penalties for Mail Fraud

Like all types of fraud, mail fraud is punished harshly by the federal criminal justice system.

If convicted of mail fraud, you could face the following penalties:

  • Up to 20 years in prison for each count
  • Up to $250,000 in fines for each count
  • One to three years of probation
  • Restitution to victim(s)

Additionally, if convicted of mail fraud involving a financial institution or federal disaster relief, you face enhanced penalties, including:

  • Up to 30 years in prison for each count
  • Up to $1 million in fines for each count

Note that the penalties for mail fraud are for each count, meaning each instance of using the U.S. mail system for the purpose of defrauding another person, organization, or entity.
