Responding to Charges of Credit Card Fraud

If you are being investigated or charged with a credit card theft or fraud crime, it is tempting to try and explain yourself to law enforcement. However, you should always speak with a criminal defense lawyer before anyone else. Prosecutors will use what you say to law enforcement against you by misconstruing your meaning. An experienced lawyer can help you navigate every stage of your case, represent you in court and when speaking to authorities, and help protect your rights.

Types of Credit Card Fraud

There is no one single definition of credit card fraud, and it is not as simple intentionally stealing and using someone else's credit card.

Common types of credit card fraud include:

  • Account take over crimes
  • Credit card theft
  • Credit card application fraud
  • “Card Not Present” crimes, or CNP crimes
  • Imprint or skimming crimes
  • Fake or counterfeit credit cards
  • Phishing

Of these categories, "card not present" or CNP crimes are some of the most common. Especially with the rise of e-commerce, many transactions now take place over the internet. This means that the merchant is not running your actual credit card. Instead, the card information is merely entered online, so anyone with access to your credit card information can potentially use your card to make purchases online.

Work with a Former Prosecutor

Credit card crimes are tried as felonies. Common penalties include jail time, fines, restitution, and probation. You also risk losing your good reputation, your job, and your standing in your community. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Wilson LaFaurie knows how these cases are handled. We have defended thousands of clients, taking more than 300 cases to trial.
