In criminal law, fraud offenses are most commonly associated with mail and wire fraud, both of which are federal crimes.

Some companies are taking facial recognition software to the real world. The CaliBurger chain in California has used it to let customers pay via their loyalty accounts. All they have to do is “sign in” by looking at a kiosk.
