We Fight “Card Present” and “Card Not Present” Scheme Charges
Credit card fraud is defined under U.S federal law as using, attempting to use, or conspiring to use any counterfeit, fictitious, altered, forged, lost, stolen, or fraudulently obtained credit card to obtain something of value. This crime can be categorized as a “card present” or “card not present” scheme.
>If you have been charged with a “card present” scheme, it means you are accused of physically stealing a credit card that belonged to another person. A “card not present” charge, on the other hand, can implicate a wide range of activities such as using skimming devices or making online purchases using stolen card information.
