In order for an individual to be convicted of mail fraud, all of the following must be true:
- Fraud was intentional
- A plan was created to purposely defraud a business, group, or individual person
- Something was mailed which contributed to the fraudulent activity
Each year throughout the United States and not just the state of Michigan, thousands of individuals are arrested and charged with mail fraud to some degree. Mail fraud violates federal law and is considered a felony. Being convicted of a felony can lead to consequences that can change your life forever. Do not let this type of conviction ruin your life!
In the most severe mail fraud cases, such as when a financial institution is involved, the guilty individual may be sentenced to jail for up to 30 years and/or be forced to pay a fine of up to $1,000,000. In less severe cases, jail sentences may be short or non-existent, and fines may not be as high. However, dealing with a charge such as this is still a hassle, can lead to some type of penalty, and can leave you with a criminal record, which will affect the rest of your life.
