Federal criminal law enforcement agencies investigate wire fraud very commonly. Many branches of the Department of Justice investigatory bodies can be involved, such as the FBI, Homeland Security, the IRS, the SEC, the Department of Defense, and more. Investigators can subpoena your private information, including bank, emails, and cell phone records.

The prosecution will use every tool at their disposal to build their case against you, so it is vital to take wire fraud investigations in South Florida seriously. Having an expert legal team in your corner can give you the tools to fight against wire fraud charges. The team at Rossen Law Firm is here for you.

How Does a Wire Fraud Investigation Start?

Fraud investigations related to wire transfers can arise from various sources. One possible way is when particular transactions catch the attention of the bank, and they report it to the law enforcement authorities. Alternatively, an investigation can begin when a regular person files a complaint about being a victim of fraud.

In most cases, wire fraud incidents reported to local authorities are escalated to the federal level. The federal law enforcement agency will then investigate the complaint and try to trace it back to a specific person. They will proceed by issuing subpoenas and obtaining search warrants in order to build a solid case.

Any arm of the Department of Justice can be involved in a South Florida wire fraud investigation. Very commonly, this is the FBI, but our Fort Lauderdale wire fraud attorneys also see cases involving civil or administrative regulatory agencies such as the SEC, the FTC, CFTC, IRS, Medicare, Office of Inspector General, and more.

What Are Investigators Looking For?

When conducting a wire fraud investigation, authorities seek many types of evidence, including witness statements and proof of online activity.


Federal investigators will talk to any witnesses they can identify, including potential co-conspirators who might have been acting with the accused. Investigators will use all angles and talk to anyone who might be a witness, suspect, or target. Anyone who might have relevant information as to whether or not a crime was committed can be identified as a witness.

Evidence of Online Activity

If investigators have gotten a legally valid search warrant signed by a federal magistrate judge or a federal judge, they can monitor an individual’s online presence. There are various ways investigators can do this. Certain warrants allow them to monitor online activity in real-time, which is more commonly known as wiretaps. We see more commonly that investigators will get a subpoena to the accused’s internet service provider for all their internet activity and monitor it that way.

Not all subpoenas are legal. Our experienced Fort Lauderdale wire fraud defense lawyers will explore any violations of the law as it relates to monitoring online activity. If an investigator finds evidence through illegal means, a lawyer can work to suppress the evidence or have it thrown out.

The Importance of Contacting a South Florida Attorney Right Away During a Wire Fraud Investigation

Your most powerful right is the right to remain silent. Giving statements without a lawyer can bolster the government’s case against you.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
