Treasure Coast Mail Fraud Defense Attorney
Providing Criminal Defense Legal Services in Stuart
Mail fraud is a criminal act committed through the use of the United States Postal Service (USPS) to deliver documents, letters, and other materials in order to defraud another person. In many cases, mail fraud is used to obtain money or other items of value. Mail fraud is partially responsible for many other similar types of fraud crimes, including internet fraud, online auction websites, work-at-home/get-rich-quick schemes, and fraudulent charity donation requests.

Understanding Florida Mail Fraud Law
In Florida, there are several forms of mail fraud, including:
- Non-shipment of items which were paid for
- Misrepresentation of items, products or materials
- Fake promotional checks
A mail fraud conviction in Florida carries serious consequences. An individual could face up to 5 years in federal prison, $100,000 in fines, community service, probation, and parole. The exact punishment in a mail fraud case depends on the circumstances of each situation, and how well the case is handled. A skilled defense attorney could help you minimize the penalties or even have the charges dismissed.

With our team guiding you through the process, you may be able to avoid the harsher consequences of a mail fraud conviction or even fight unsubstantiated charges for a dismissal.
