California Communication Fraud Charges and Penalties
What is Communication Fraud?
Every person who transmits or causes to be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication any words, sounds, writings, signs, signals, or pictures for the purpose of furthering or executing a scheme or artifice to obtain, from a public utility, confidential, privileged, or proprietary information, trade secrets, trade lists, customer records, billing records, customer credit data, or accounting data by mean of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, personations, or promises, is guilty of communication fraud.
Examples of communication fraud include but are not limited to making a telephone call that advances the scheme to defraud, like scamming or phishing, sending an email that advances the scheme to defraud, or initiating or causing someone else to initiate a wire transfer of money in connection with a scheme to defraud.
What is the Penalty?
The penalty for communication fraud, also known as false or fraudulent wire, radio, or television communications, is imprisonment for up to 1 year, a fine, or both.
As the penalty can range so widely, it is important to have knowledgeable legal counsel who can advocate for the lowest sentence possible for you.
Even as a Defendant, you still have Rights! Make sure yours were not violated!
Even as an individual facing criminal charges, you have rights, and it is important to know those rights and make sure that they were not violated in any way when you were arrested or charged.
