Prosecutors routinely include mail fraud and wire fraud allegations in an indictment that contains other criminal charges. Generally speaking, a defendant charged with mail fraud is alleged to have used the U.S. Postal Service in connection with a scheme to defraud another of money or property. A defendant charged with wire fraud is alleged to have used an interstate wire transfer (such as a telephone call, email, money wire transfer, or text message) to further a criminal scheme.
