How the Law Views Credit Card Fraud

Under NRS 205.690 (5) (a) (b), it is against the law to use the credit card information of another person without his or her permission. Simply possessing a physical credit card is not enough to demonstrate that fraud has taken place. Many times, using the credit card number imprinted without the cardholder’s permission can constitute credit card fraud.

Credit card fraud is a class D felony, which may entail the following penalties:

  • 1-4 years in state prison
  • $5, 000 or more in fines
  • Restitution to victims

As Las Vegas criminal defense attorneys, we can fight any accusations of credit card fraud on your behalf. Have you been accused? Remember that in these types of cases, the prosecution must prove that you intended to commit fraud. Another possible defense is to investigate whether or not the police acted unlawfully, such as performing a search and seizure without reasonable cause. Or, the police mistook you for someone else, and you were identified incorrectly. We can take a closer look at the circumstances of your case and build a strong defense for you.
