Didgeridoo lessons

A loud blast to the hard-of-hearing in New York

And more "law school" lessons....

Whoever, having devised or intending to devise any scheme or artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, transmits or causes to be transmitted by means of wire, radio, or television communication in interstate or foreign commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds for the purpose of executing such scheme or artifice, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.18 U.S. Code § 1343 - Fraud by wire, radio, or television

Obstruction of Justice by Deception 
In addition to the obstruction of justice provisions of 18 U.S.C. 1503 and 1512, four other general 
statutes outlaw obstructing the government’s business by deception. Three involve perjury: 18 
U.S.C. 1623 which outlaws false swearing before federal courts and grand juries; 18 U.S.C. 1621 
the older and more general prohibition that proscribes false swearing in federal official matters 
(judicial, legislative, or administrative); and 18 U.S.C. 1622 which condemns subornation, that is, 
inducing another to commit perjury. The fourth, 18 U.S.C. 1001, proscribes material false 
statements concerning any matter within the jurisdiction of a federal executive branch agency, 
and to a somewhat more limited extent within the jurisdiction of the federal courts or a 

congressional entity.
