Many people use credit and debit cards for day-to-day transactions. If they don’t keep careful track of these cards, they are easy targets for credit card fraud perpetrators. Fraud can happen in several ways, from stealing the card itself to taking the card number and pin through a person’s digital account.
Credit card fraud prohibits the following activities and more:
- Using a credit card knowing it was stolen or unlawful.
- Using a credit card knowing it was forged, revoked, or expired.
- Using another’s card without his or her consent.
- Claiming to be a credit card user without the user’s permission.
- Claiming to be the credit card user when the card hasn’t been issued.
- Selling a credit card when you’re not the issuer.

Make sure to give yourself the best chance of avoiding a conviction by talking to one of our skilled Fort Wayne crime attorneys today.
