What Is Mail Fraud?
Mail fraud covers a wide variety of crimes and overlaps with other types of fraud as well. For example, people may be accused of mail fraud and credit card fraud if the fraud involved stealing credit card applications from the mail and sending them via the mail. Essentially, any act of fraud that involves the mail is mail fraud.
Many mail fraud allegations involve pyramid schemes of some type, many of which are particularly elaborate. These cases may also involve conspiracy charges, depending on the nature of the scheme and the number of people involved.
