Detroit Credit Card Fraud Laws – Credit Card Theft Defense Lawyer in Michigan

As defined by state law, a credit card is any instrument or device which is sold, issued, or otherwise distributed by a bank, financial institution, or business for the use of a person or organization identified with the instrument or device to obtain goods, services, property, or anything of value on credit. Cards used specifically for obtaining health care services are also included in this definition. Debit cards, though not “credit” in the same way other credit cards may be, are still included for purposes of fraud laws.

Anyone who steals, takes, removes, or knowingly possesses a fraudulent or altered financial transaction device, or who possesses or controls another’s financial transaction device with intent to use, deliver, circulate, or sell, or who delivers or sells a fraudulent or stolen financial transaction device, or who simulates or counterfeits a financial transaction device, can be charged with a felony offense. Similarly, using a revoked or cancelled financial transaction device with intent to defraud can lead to misdemeanor or felony charges.

The specific penalties a person will face vary greatly depend on what other crimes may have been committed, what amount of money, services, property, or goods was fraudulently obtained, as well as whether or not the offender had prior convictions on record. Grabel & Associates is always available for clients in Detroit and will begin working through the details of your case alongside you as soon as you get in touch.
