Organized Fraud Defense in Florida
Accused of Fraud? Our Florida Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Help.
Florida laws 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 penalties 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.
