Q & A With Scott Engelhard

Interviewer: What is Mail Fraud?

Scott Engelhard: Mail fraud is a general type of federal fraud crime that involves some usage of the United States Postal Service. Mail fraud does not require any effort to defraud the Postal Service. Rather, mail fraud occurs whether the scheme somehow involves the U.S. mail. For example, mail fraud is often charged where there is alleged sale and mailing of counterfeit coins or other item, even though the false statement or misrepresentation that constitutes the “fraud” occurred before the mailing. Consequently, mail fraud is a very broad crime and is often charged along with other types of fraud, including wire fraud, mortgage fraud, or securities fraud. However, the prosecutor is required to prove that the statements, promises, or misrepresentations knowingly made and were “material” to the transaction. I have handled dozens of mail fraud cases in my career. I am aggressive in handling these cases and fight with determination to get the best result possible for my client.
