Credit Card Fraud

Depending on the nature of the charge, when it comes to credit card fraud you could be looking at a gross misdemeanor conviction.

If you’ve been accused of credit card fraud then contact our experienced attorneys today to get the professional and experienced representation that you deserve.


There are a number of offenses that fall into credit card fraud. Instances of credit card fraud include but are not limited to:

  • When someone is responsible for producing or selling illegal credit cards
  • When someone obtains, takes, signs, uses, sells or buys someone else’s credit card or debit card information
  • When someone uses a credit card knowing that this card was stolen or illegally obtained.
  • When someone uses someone else’s credit card to buy goods and services online without the other person’s knowledge
  • When someone sells goods or services to another person with the knowledge that the person using the credit card is not the real owner of the card.
  • When someone uses his own credit card to purchase an item with the knowledge that the credit card is invalid, expired or linked to a closed or inactive account, or an account with insufficient funds.


In some instances credit card fraud can be considered a federal offense which means it will be handled outside the Minnesota courts. If you are convicted of a federal offense you could be facing a long term jail sentence, fines, restitution to the victim or probation. It is our goal to ensure that, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the case, you are granted the best outcome possible.
