Fort Worth Credit Card Fraud Charges – Justin Sparks Defense
Credit Card Fraud
Credit card fraud (also known as credit card/debit card abuse) encompasses a wide range of fraudulent transaction types. Knowingly using a credit or debit card to make a payment without permission of the cardholder, obtaining funds using an unauthorized card, or using a card that doesn’t have the proper funds in the account are all forms of credit card fraud. Credit card fraud can also be a form of identity theft, and perpetrators may be charged for both crimes.
What Qualifies as Credit Card Fraud?
Using a credit or debit card in any of the following manners can result in criminal fraud charges:
Using a card without consent of the cardholder
Using a card that has expired or has been cancelled/revoked
Possessing a stolen card with the intent to use it
