What Is Wire Fraud?

Wire fraud is an intentional act to defraud an individual or organization through the use of the internet or a telecommunications device.

Wire fraud can be committed through all types of electronic media, including but not limited to:

  • Email
  • Text messaging
  • Phone calls
  • Social media
  • Faxes
  • Communication apps

Additionally, to prove wire fraud, one must prove all of the following elements:

  • The defendant participated in or devised a scheme or plan to defraud another person or entity out of money
  • The defendant acted voluntarily and with the intent to defraud
  • The use of interstate wire communications (electronic/communications devices) was reasonably foreseeable
  • Interstate wire communications were, in fact, used

Those found guilty of wire fraud face serious criminal penalties, including hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and possible prison time up to 20 years per charge for most cases. Additionally, victims who were defrauded out of money or suffered other damages have the option of pursuing justice by bringing civil lawsuits against defendants, occasionally under the RICO Act but more commonly under common theft and fraud statutes.
