Miami Wire Fraud Attorney

With the proliferation of the Internet have come new avenues for fraud. We have all seen "spam" emails offering quick riches in exchange for some simple information that lead to credit card fraud. The Florida legislature has responded in kind, consolidating many prior fraud statutes and updating them for the technology age and computer crimes. If you have been accused of committing any type of wire fraud, you should contact a Miami criminal defense lawyer at Seltzer Mayberg, LLC for a free consultation about your case.

The new statute, the Florida Communications Fraud Act, makes any scheme to defraud another individual through the mail, email, Internet, facsimile, telephone, etc. a crime. Whether money or property exchanged hands is not an essential element of the crime. Rather, the exchange of money is an aggravating factor which may result in a heightened sentence. The punishment structure is as follows. All monetary figures are aggregate:

If property exchanged hands:

  • In excess of $50,000 - 1st degree felony
  • In excess of $20,000 but less than $50,000 - 2nd Degree Felony
  • Less than $20,000 - 3rd degree felony

If property did not exchange hands:

  • More than $300 - 3rd degree misdemeanor
  • Less than $300 - 1st degree misdemeanor

If you're not sure how this applies to your case, you can speak a Miami wire fraud criminal defense lawyer at a free consultation, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The state has significant leverage when prosecuting a fraud case, since prosecutors may charge each communication separately. If you're facing a wire fraud charge in Florida, you should get help from a trusted criminal defense attorney.
