Federal Credit Card Fraud Crimes

Credit card fraud refers to the unlawful act of attempting to or carrying out a scheme to defraud another person by the use of credit cards or debit cards. Many credit card fraud offenses include making false statements to gain access to someone else's financial identity.

A credit card fraud crime can involve:

  • Counterfeiting
  • Forgery
  • Misrepresenting information to obtain a credit card
  • Stealing another person's credit card and selling it to obtain a benefit
  • Using another person's credit card
