Organized Fraud Charge
Florida has specific laws which have been set in place to prosecute individuals who commit what is termed “organized fraud” – fraud committed by means of creating schemes that conceal the sender’s identity and send the target a personalized sales message. People accused of organized fraud will face prosecution under federal wire fraud and mail fraud statutes, which make it a criminal offense to defraud or attempt to defraud others by means of interstate “wires” (telephone, internet, TV, radio) or via the mail.
