Credit Card Fraud Attorney In Albany, Oregon

Fraud involves using deception to gain something you would not otherwise be entitled to. As a form of theft, fraud falls under the category of white collar crime because it is typically a nonviolent offense. Nonetheless, like other theft offenses, fraud carries a stigma of dishonesty. A conviction could leave you struggling to find employment down the road.

One of the most common types of fraud is credit card theft. Unauthorized use of another's credit card number is a serious crime — even if you never physically possessed the card. Other types of fraud include:

  • Bank fraud
  • Check fraud (which includes writing bad checks)
  • Forgery
  • Counterfeiting
  • Possessing a fake identity card
  • Government benefit fraud
  • Insurance fraud

Many of these charges are felony offenses. Harsher penalties come into play if large sums of money or property were involved. Ultimately, no matter the specific circumstances of your case, fraud charges should never be taken lightly.
