Credit Card Fraud Attorney Marc J. Victor – Credit card fraud is a type of theft crime that occurs when a person fraudulently uses another person’s credit card to make illegal purchases. Credit card fraud and other white collar crimes can have severe penalties. Much like identity theft crimes, credit card fraud punishments can be severe and could include not only restitution and fines, but prison time as well. The fraudulent use of another person’s identity or credit card can also be prosecuted under the RICO statutes.

2. Obtains or attempts to obtain money, goods, services or any other thing of value by representing, without the consent of the cardholder, that the person is the holder to a specified card or by representing that the person is the holder of a credit card and the card has not in fact been issued.

If the value of all money, goods, services and other things of value obtained or attempted to be obtained in violation of this section is two hundred fifty dollars or more but less than one thousand dollars in any consecutive six-month period the offense is a class 6 felony. If the value of all money, goods, services and other things of value obtained or attempted to be obtained in violation of this section is one thousand dollars or more in any consecutive six-month period the offense is a class 5 felony.
