Information on Credit Card Fraud
There are many definitions for credit fraud. Several various crimes can be classified as credit card fraud, depending upon the circumstance. Credit card can be something as small as using a family member's credit card without their permission, to as large as stealing thousands of numbers from a business and charging large items to all of them.
Credit card fraud can also include illegally obtaining credit cards by lying on the applications, and purchasing items up to the card's limit with no intention to pay.

Credit card fraud is a white collar crime and, if the crime was perpetrated in more than one state, can be a federal crime. A federal crime will be harshly pursued by federal prosecutors and under the federal sentencing guidelines can result in severe punishments, including lengthy time federal prison. Even if it is not tried as a federal crime, a credit card fraud conviction that is a felony can also carry with it extremely harsh sentencing. In these instances, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for you in your legal proceedings.
