Credit Card Fraud Attorneys in Michigan

Aggressively Fighting on Behalf of Clients across Royal Oak

Credit card fraud is a theft offense. It is the unlawful use, possession, or sale of a credit card, debit card, or gift card (also called financial transaction devices) with the intent to fraudulently obtain money, refunds, credit, services, or goods. Simply being in possession of an account number belonging to someone else and having the intention of unlawfully using it will result in a credit card fraud charge against you.

Credit Card Fraud Charges

Michigan has several crimes that fall under credit card fraud, the most common crime being the actual stealing of a credit card or debit card from its owner.

In order to prove this crime, the prosecutor will have to prove:

  • You intentionally stole or removed the card from its true owner; or
  • You intentionally used a transaction device of another without permission to do so.

Additional crimes that fall under credit card fraud include possession of an altered transaction device, unlawful receipt of a transaction device with the intent to sell it, and the materially altering or forging a transaction device.

Credit Card Fraud Penalties

Credit card fraud is a felony that can result in large fines as well as a prison term of up to four years. Your prison term can be increased if you have multiple fraud offenses or have past criminal acts on your record.
