Credit Card Abuse
Are you facing charges for credit card abuse?
Unauthorized use of another person’s credit card or debit card is known as credit card abuse or credit card fraud. It is a serious crime that, at the very least, can earn you up to two years in a state prison and up to $10,000 in fines. If the credit card abuse is considered a first-degree felony then you’re looking at up to 99 years in prison and a big fine. Credit card abuse charges can include fraud and identity theft. It is a common white-collar crime that the legal system is trying hard to fight because of its widespread prevalence, and in doing so the law hopes that strict punishment will serve as a deterrent.
Apart from this punishment, you may be required to reimburse the victims with interest, have a criminal record against your name that will make it extremely difficult to get a job or a loan, as well as cause a loss of reputation.
