Credit card fraud is one of the most common white collar crimes and refers to the act of acquiring money or property via someone else’s credit card. This can include using forged or stolen cards, using someone’s pin number with a credit card, using the credit card identification numbers without physically possessing the card, or untruthfully stating that you have permission to use someone else’s card. While these crimes are sometimes considered misdemeanors, many credit card fraud crimes in Florida are punishable as felonies.
