If you have been accused of credit card fraud in Las Vegas, you need to act quickly. Credit card fraud, as legally defined, is the use of a credit card as a fraudulent source of funding in a transaction. This can refer to stolen identity or the use of cards with knowledge of insufficient funding available to gain access to goods or services.
Credit Card fraud can often start off with a simple transaction where there are expected funds coming in, and in order to “bridge a gap” relating to financial difficulties, there is a charge placed on a card with an intention to “pay back the person” or get money into the deficient account before the transaction posts. In other words, credit card fraud often starts with the best of intentions to make the fraud right, but spirals out of control quickly.
In other cases there is a more nefarious intent. Whatever the cause of your accusation, be assured the Law Office of Cal J Potter can successfully represent you in cases involving credit card fraud.
