Credit Card Fraud

In the past, credit card fraud was limited to physically stealing a card and using it to purchase goods and services. Today, this crime has many faces, including stealing card numbers electronically.

With credit card fraud and identify theft on the rise, New York lawmakers and prosecutors are fully dedicated to catching and punishing the perpetrators. In order to defend yourself against such charges, you need an experienced criminal defender who understands these complex laws and is willing to give your matter the attention it needs.
