Credit Card Fraud Protecting Your Rights & Defending Your Future

Credit Card Fraud Defense Attorney in St. Louis

Representing Clients Charged with White Collar Crimes

Credit card fraud is committed by using another person's credit or debit card in order to access their financial resources for personal gain or to attain services that they are not authorized to obtain. Credit card fraud is a crime that has been rapidly occurring throughout the country and the government is now severely cracking down on offenders. This form of fraud is considered to be a felony offense which is found in the US Code under Title 18, Section 1029. Each state however, may have its own laws regarding the sentencing of this crime. In the state of Missouri, if you are buying goods or trying to get a service by using a card that you know to be stolen, expired, or canceled, then you can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor.

The penalty for credit card fraud will depend on how much money was stolen and whether or not there were additional felony crimes involved. Credit card fraud can be considered grand theft if the purchased goods and services amount to more than $5,000. If the fraud is in the area of $60,000, then you could be facing up to 2 years of incarceration. If you have any previous offenses on your criminal record, then you may be facing harsher penalties when you face the prosecution. Many people commit credit card fraud as part of grander scheme which entails identity theft. In this case, you can be charged for larceny for stealing the credit / debit as well as forgery for signing with another person's name.
