Wire Fraud Attorney in Miami
Charged with wire fraud?
Because of the increasingly fast paced world of technology that we live in today, many new schemes to defraud others of their property and assets have developed. The proliferation of wire fraud schemes has caused the legislature of Florida to enact the Florida Communications Fraud Act. The act allows the state to prosecute acts involving fraud and the use of telephones, computers and any other communication technology covered by the act. The act closely resembles the federal law,
fraud by wire, radio or television.
The federal law provides for a possible one million dollar in fines and up to 30 years in prison. As you can see, an accusation or charge of wire fraud should not be taken lightly. If you have been accused of wire fraud, you should speak to a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney at once. Do not give any statement to authorities before consulting with and retaining an attorney to protect you, as anything you say can and will be held against you.
