PASSIONATE DEFENSE REPRESENTATION

Let's Change The Outcome

Be aware of implication in wire fraud

Working in a position of power in South Carolina is a double-edged sword. While your job may be well-paid and interesting, it can also mean that you come under a lot of scrutiny. If you make any kind of mistake, there may be suspicions that it was a deliberate action intended to benefit yourself or someone close to you. However, no one is infallible, so it is important to be prepared in case you are accused of illegal activity.

White collar crimes come in many forms, but most of them involve some form of fraud. In the modern era, this is particularly common over the Internet or via other forms of electronic communication. This particular form of fraud is known as wire fraud as it involves the use of wire communications.

In general, it often involves the unauthorized use of a person’s financial information. However, if you send out communication that can be perceived as deceptive or intending to garner information about an individual’s financial details, you could come under suspicion. Despite this, as this article on wire fraud explains, you need to have had intent to defraud for it to count as a crime.

It can be extremely difficult to show whether or not you were aware of fraudulent dealings, especially if you appear to have been involved in them. An attorney may be able to help you build your defense and ensure that your side of the story is heard by the court.
