Credit Card Fraud Cases
Credit card fraud is a white collar crime and a form of theft. Credit card fraud encompasses many illegal activities through the use of a credit card to purchase services or items, receive cash or transfer money, or to in any way gain financially through the illegal or fraudulent use of a credit card. Credit card fraud is often a form of identity theft which occurs when one individual uses credit card information belonging to another person to obtain goods, services or money. If you have been accused of committing credit card fraud then contact a white collar crime lawyer immediately for a complete review of your case.
A conviction for credit card fraud can have very serious ramifications, including prison time, restitution and more. Specific penalties will vary depending on the circumstances of the case, the amount of money involved and the defendant’s criminal record, if any.
