Elements Of Credit Card Fraud Cases
Credit card fraud is a white collar crime that is a type of identity theft. It can occur in a number of ways, including:
- Stealing the physical card
- Stealing the card number and security code
- Applying for a card under another person’s name
- Selling stolen cards and numbers
- Hacking into customer databases
These types of crimes can result in federal charges being filed. A few of the commonly related federal charges include mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering and conspiracy.
