Credit Card Fraud

Anyone accused of credit card theft, credit card fraud, or fraudulent use of a financial transaction device needs a proficient Michigan criminal defense lawyer immediately. If you are even under investigation for charges of criminal credit card fraud, your quick action to obtain the best legal representation could be a pivotal advantage. The right lawyer can help you avoid jail, and Grabel & Associates has spent over a decade using the right tactics to effectively defend clients accused of credit card theft.

Credit Card Theft and Fraud in Michigan

If you are charged with unlawful sale, use, or possession of a credit card, debit card, gift card, or any other financial transaction device, you will be subject to harsh criminal penalties. Fortunately for financial transaction fraud offenders, victims are often more concerned with restitution than with putting you behind bars. Still, possessing the card, account number, PIN (personal identification number), credit card number, or bank account of another person with intent to fraudulently obtain money or goods is a serious crime, and prosecutors will push to enforce strict criminal penalties that will affect you for the rest of your life. Avoid jail time, fines, and other restrictions by working with Grabel & Associates as soon as possible.

Criminal Penalties for Credit Card Fraud or Theft Charges in Michigan

If you steal, take, or remove a financial transaction device from the possession of the deviceholder, or even knowingly retain a device without consent, you could be charged with a felony in Michigan. If you possess a fraudulent or altered financial transaction device, such as a credit card, debit card, or gift card, you can also be found guilty of a felony fraud charge in Michigan. Selling a financial transaction device, using a cancelled credit card, debit card, or other device, or falsifying identity in order to use a credit card, along with many other offenses can land you behind bars for a long time.

Fraudulent Use of a Financial Transaction Device

According to the Michigan Penal Code (750.157n), the penalties for committing a credit card fraud or theft offense are severe. You could face a prison term of as many as four years, and significant fines and restitution payments. Amplified sentences could be possible with the co-occurrence of multiple fraud offenses, past offenses on record, or other criminal acts committed in the process of a fraud offense in Michigan.
