Examples Of Credit Card Fraud

Credit card fraud is a type of white collar crime. Like other white collar crimes, it can involve the use of identity theft as well as the internet. As your Lafayette credit card fraud defense attorney, I am committed to building a solid defense on your behalf. I carefully analyze all evidence, including police reports and your internet history, to develop a solid defense strategy. I handle all types of credit card-related crimes such as:

  • Using lost or stolen credit cards
  • Fraudulently obtaining credit cards through the mail through identity theft or by using someone else’s credit card application
  • Obtaining lists of stolen credit card numbers
  • Using a customer’s credit card

Credit Card Fraud And Identity Theft

Most examples of credit card fraud involve elements of identity theft. For example, digging through a neighbor’s garbage and using a credit card application addressed to him or her to apply for a credit card in your name is a type of fraud. Or, when a cashier at a retail store writes down a customer’s credit card number to use for his or her own personal purchases later, this is considered fraud.

Credit card forgery and fraud are serious allegations that can change your life. I am devoted to obtaining the most favorable result for my clients who are facing these allegations and charges.
