Facing Charges Of Credit Card Theft

The criminal defense law office of Mark M. Cheser counsels and defends people under investigation or charged with the following:

  • Stealing credit cards out of a mailbox

Challenging The Evidence Against You In Credit Card Fraud Cases

There are several issues that can arise in the course of stolen credit card cases that make it difficult for prosecutors to prove you used someone else's credit card. It's not unusual for prosecutors to recover retail store security camera footage allegedly showing the accused using a stolen credit card. Security camera footage is notoriously grainy and often unclear. Additionally, if a stolen credit card was used to purchase items over the Internet, it may be difficult to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that you were the one sitting behind the computer when items were ordered online — even if they were sent to your home address or P.O. box.
