How Federal Mail Fraud Charges Work
According to 18 U.S.C. § 1341, mail fraud is a crime in which the alleged perpetrator commits fraud by specifically using the post office, related boxes for depositing mail, or any service from the Postal Service.
To prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the defendant has committed mail fraud, the prosecutor must show that:
- The alleged perpetrator constructed a scheme or a plan to illegally gain through fraud
- The alleged perpetrator utilized the U.S. Postal Service to send an item (whether a package, letter, postcard, etc.) through the mail
- The alleged perpetrator willfully desired to commit fraud
Even if the plan never was successful or the defendant changed their mind and did not complete the plan, it does not matter. As long as any attempt was made to use the U.S. Post Office's mail services, the defendant could be charged with fraud. Moreover, if one of the targets of the crime was a financial institution, like a bank, even higher fines can be imposed, such as $1,000,000 and/or a 30-year prison sentence.
