Credit Card Fraud Defense Lawyer in Brooklyn
Protecting You from Devastating Criminal Consequences
As technology advances, fraud cases related to the internet and credit cards have become more complicated. Law enforcement and prosecutors take an aggressive stance when it comes to pursuing charges for credit card fraud, often seeking maximum penalties.
If you believe you are under investigation for credit card theft, or if you have been charged with credit card fraud, your first step should be to seek legal counsel from a knowledgeable Brooklyn credit card fraud defense lawyer. The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie know how confusing and stressful it is to face criminal charges. We can put our decades of experience to work in your defense.
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
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.
