State & Federal Wire Fraud Laws & Penalties

Wire fraud means defrauding a person or business through communication and correspondence methods, such as telephone, e-mail, other online communications, radio, or television in interstate or international commerce. In order to be convicted of wire fraud, you must have either intentionally created or participated in a fraud scheme and you used wire communications during the scheme.

In Illinois, wire fraud is a Class 3 felony, punishable by a maximum prison term of five years. However, if you are facing both state and federal charges, you will most likely be prosecuted in federal court.

A conviction of wire fraud in federal court is punishable by a federal prison sentence of up to 20 years and fines of $250,000 for individuals or $500,000 for groups.
