Defining Credit Card And Identity Theft Charges

Credit card theft is a serious crime in Arizona, and it includes taking or possessing another person’s credit card without their consent. If a person uses a stolen credit card or is the recipient of anything purchased with a stolen credit card and they are aware, they can also be charged with credit card fraud. A person can face credit card fraud charges if they:

  • Possess or take somebody else’s credit card without the cardholder’s permission.
  • Possess or control somebody else’s credit card as collateral for a debt.
  • Sell a credit card with the intention of defrauding another person.

Credit card fraud in Arizona is considered a class 5 felony offense that can carry penalties of up to two years in prison. If a person has received anything purchased with a stolen credit card, additional criminal charges may be filed, with the penalties depending on the value of the purchased item. Speak with a Phoenix criminal defense attorney to discuss how to defend your case.

Arizona also has strict laws concerning identity theft. Taking the identity of another person is considered a class 4 felony offense in Arizona, which is punishable by up to 2.5 years in prison. Identity theft in Arizona includes any intent to use a person’s identity for unlawful purposes, to cause a loss to the person, or to gain employment under another person’s name. These charges can be applied if a person records, manufactures, or possesses identity records or information related to another person’s identity.
