Letter from U.S. Postal Inspection Service
Co-Written by former Justice Department Prosecutors
The United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) investigates packages and shipments that contain suspicious content pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3001. If you receive a letter from the Criminal Investigations Service Center, you must understand that you cannot afford to make any mistakes when handling this matter. Rather than falling into the trap and calling the 1-800 number listed in the letter addressed to you, you should contact an experienced federal criminal defense attorney such as Dr. Nick Oberheiden immediately to protect your interests and your liberty. Nick’s mission is simple:
- To avoid charges against you
- To avoid the public (employer, family members, etc.) finding out about this letter
Getting unexpected mail from federal law enforcement is an unnerving experience. Although a variety of scenarios may go through your head as to why the government has contacted you, whether you are caught in a crime or soon to be accused of one, if you are in serious federal trouble, and what you should do next to avoid charges or even serving prison time— it is crucial to meet with the best attorney you can find before making any decisions or mistakes that cannot be reversed.
- Do not call the number listed in the letter
- Do not discuss your case with others
- Contact Federal Defense Attorney Dr. Nick Oberheiden immediately
There are a few things you should not do under any circumstances. You should not discuss the letter with friends, the true or potential sender of the package, or non-attorneys. You should not draw conclusions based on any online legal research–– no article, no matter how well written and how detailed, will be able to address and answer your very specific letter and circumstances. And, most importantly, you should not under any circumstances discuss the letter or the investigation with any law-enforcement official, whether in person, on the phone, or in writing. Also remember, do not call the number on the letter. Instead, call federal criminal defense attorney Dr. Nick Oberheiden. Why? Because:
- Nick avoids criminal charges in the vast majority of federal investigations
- Nick has experience and knowledge you can trust.
- Nick has handled hundreds of federal investigations
- Nick only takes federal cases
Unfortunately, most recipients of such a letter, because they are scared of prosecution, are inclined to contact the government to learn more about the investigation, whether they are in “real” trouble, and what steps they should take to protect their interests. Our advice is simple: do not ever call the government. The government is not there to help you. The government is not there to get you relief. The government is not there to answer your questions. The government cannot and will not discuss the status of the investigation with you. The government is only there to get information— from you!
- The government wants you to incriminate yourself
- The government will not answer your questions
- The government will not tell you about the investigation
If you contact the Justice Department, the FBI, US Postal Service, or anyone else listed as a contact in your investigation, your words will be recorded and any statements you make that amount to an admission or self-incrimination can ––and likely will–– be held against you in a court of law. Again, do not call the government yourself!
- Lying or withholding information when talking to federal law enforcement is a federal felony!
- Don’t talk to the government without first finding the best attorney for your case.
Additionally, unbeknownst to most people (including lawyers who don’t practice federal criminal law or who do not routinely work with the DEA or the FBI), any conversation you may have with a federal agent is subject to a statute located at 18 U.S.C. to 1001. By virtue of the statute, anything that you misrepresent, lie about, fail to disclose, withhold, or downplay in a conversation with a federal official such as a DEA or FBI agent constitutes a federal felony and is subject to up to five years in federal prison. Subsequently, you must not believe a federal agent who pressures, reassures, or promises you that “you are not in trouble” if you come clean or help them with their investigation. After all, you are the target of their investigation! While you can be prosecuted for lying to a federal agent, federal agents on the other hand, are legally allowed to lie to you. And make no mistake: in order to trick you and make you talkative, they will lie to you. That’s part of their investigative strategies and an easy way to secure admissions and incriminations to be used against you in subsequent prosecutions.
