District court's imposition of a sentence of four-months' imprisonment on a defendant convicted of wire fraud for defrauding several people out of money and property, by posing as an expectant mother willing to give her child up for adoption, is affirmed where: 1) district court  correctly applied the "vulnerable victim" and "mass-marketing" sentence enhancements; and 2) the district court properly considered the section 3553(a) factors.
