955. Expanding Uses of the Mail And Wire Fraud Statutes in Prosecutions
The mail fraud and wire fraud statutes are becoming important tools in prosecutions of a) RICO violations, b) money laundering, c) financial institution fraud, and d) telemarketing fraud. Mail and wire fraud violations that support prosecutions in these areas can result in more severe sanctions and can form the basis for civil or criminal forfeiture.
