Credit Card Fraud vs. Identity Theft
While credit card fraud is categorized as crimes that are based on the deceptive or unauthorized use of another’s credit or debit card, identity theft involves a much more intricate scheme than a few fraudulent charges. Those charged with identity theft have typically used another’s identity to clone credit or debit cards, open a new line of credit, or obtain another form of loan or false identification in the victim’s name. Though identity theft charges are often more severe, both crimes can result in felony charges and substantial jail or prison sentences. Rose Legal Services is ready to defend your credit card or identity theft charges to help preserve your future today.
