    Default Wire fraud ?

    Do you know what means "wire fraud" ?

    Kelly : What kind of trouble are you in ?

    Dory : Oh taxpayers theft, and five hundred million counts of wire fraud ?

    I know that this Dory fraudulently billed government agencies. Does that mean that Dory created false counts in telecoms network ?

    Thank you in advance.

    I think it means committing fraud by using a computer or electronic means to steal money from other peoples accounts

    Maybe you're right.

    Or maybe she bypassed the official network...

    Anyway, thank you very much.
