Credit Card Theft
In Arizona, the criminal act of stealing someone else’s credit card is a class 5 felony and can be punished by up to 2.5 years in prison. Credit card theft is a crime that is prosecuted aggressively and should be taken very seriously. A person can be charged with credit card theft if:
- A credit card or credit card number is stolen
- The card is used to purchase items or services without the owner’s permission
- They are in possession of a credit card or credit card account number knowing that it was stolen
- They obtain control of either a credit card or account number as collateral for a debt with the intent to defraud.
It’s important that a person facing credit card theft charges seeks the help of an attorney as soon as possible. Conviction of credit card theft not only carries a harsh punishment, but it can also have a negative impact on your ability to obtain employment.
