Convictions for mail or wire fraud can carry significant prison sentences and expensive fines, as well as requiring forfeiture of all assets derived from the fraudulent activities. When these charges involve a financial institution, such as a bank, the penalties increase significantly.
Because mail and wire fraud are often prosecuted in conjunction with other white collar crimes, individuals who have been charged with mail and wire fraud often face additional penalties for:
- Bank fraud
- Health care fraud
- Identity theft
- Securities fraud
