credit card Fraud

 

Credit card fraud in Arizona covers a few scenarios.

Fraudulent Use

Using a car with stored value to obtain goods or services without the cardholder’s permission is illegal. If the value of the purchase is under $250, the offense is a Class 1 Misdemeanor. If the value of the purchases falls between $250 and $1,000 within a consecutive 6 month period, the offense is a Class 6 Felony. If the value of the purchases is over $1,000 within a consecutive 6 month period, the offense is a Class 5 Felony.

Theft

Stealing a card with stored value or obtaining one by fraudulent means is a Class 5 Felony.

Aggravated Charges

If the victim suffers a loss of over $3,000 or if over three identities are stolen, the charges are considered aggravated, making the offense a Class 3 Felony.
