CREDIT CARD THEFT DEFENSE – MARYLAND ATTORNEYS
Defense of Credit Card Fraud in Maryland
Credit Card fraud in Maryland is a very serious crime.
Credit card fraud occurs when a person fraudulently obtain, takes, signs, uses, sells, buys or forges someone else’s credit or debit card or their card information. Another form of credit card fraud is selling something to someone knowing that the credit card being used to pay for the item or services is illegally obtained or being used without authorization.
Each time a credit card or debit card transaction occurs without authorization of the real owner can constitute as a new criminal act in Maryland. Thus, if an illegally obtained credit card is used for five different transactions, each transaction is criminal act. Therefore, each of five transactions can result in a separate charge in Maryland.
Due to the high rate of credit card fraud in Maryland, unlike other types of theft crimes, in Maryland, regardless of the value of the transaction, each transaction is usually classified as a felony.
