The federal crime of fraud covers a significant number of acts, all of which revolve around deception for profit. The federal criminal statutes in this area separate fraud into different categories: mail fraud, wire fraud and bank fraud, and a number of other types. Almost any type of business activity can give rise to the possibility of fraud.
For the government to obtain a conviction for fraud of any type, they will have to show proof that a defendant intentionally deceived another person for the purpose of unlawfully profiting from the other party’s loss.
