"You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty"
Gainesville Credit Card Fraud Defense Attorney
Have you been charged with Credit Card Fraud in Gainesville?
Credit card fraud involves fraudulently using a credit card in order to obtain goods or services. A person may use a card that does not belong to him. This is also known as identity theft. He may use a card after it has been revoked. The penalty depends on the number of times the card is used and the amount of property illegally obtained.
In Florida, if a person uses a card less than three times within a six month period and the value of the goods or services taken is less than $100, he is guilty of a misdemeanor in the first degree. The penalty can be up to one year in jail and a fine of $1000. If the card is used three times or more within a six month period or more than $100 is taken, the person is chargeable with a third degree felony. The fine is double the loss to the victim or $5000 whichever is higher and the maximum prison sentence is five years.
