Mail fraud is the fraudulent schemes of an individual or entity to deprive another person or entity of personal property via the mail system. This can be done through a report of a lost package when the package was really taken by an employee. There are many different ways to commit mail fraud. While most are for the purpose of financial gain, some are for the purpose of damaging an individual or entity. There can be very serious penalties for conviction of mail fraud.
Wire fraud is a somewhat broad crime; it involves deception, promises, intentional leading to false truth and/or other deceiving acts for the purpose of depriving an individual of personal property or money or obtaining money or other property and assets.

As a federal crime, it can be punishable by up to 20 years in a federal prison and/or up to $1,000,000 in fines.
