The use of telephone, telegraph or similar federally regulated
media for commiting fraud.
Fraud is gaining profit by making false representations.

Hmm, sounds like fraudulent sales.
That is selling something one does not have the right to sell.

This sounds like an anti-trust violation?
Something like price fixing or something.

I think the charge is *failure* to report.
Certain types of investments and funds must be reported to
the fedral government for tax purposes. Failure to do so
is a crime.
The peace of God be with you.
