Have You Been Charged With Debit or Credit Abuse in Denton?
C redit/debit card abuse usually occurs when an individual has stolen a credit card or debit card, has stolen the card numbers, has used someone else’s credit or debit card without permission or has used the credit/debit card numbers without permission in online purchases. Even accepting something from an individual using a stolen credit or debit card can result in criminal charges.
Texas treats credit card and debit card abuse as a state jail felony, carrying a punishment of 180 days to 2 years in jail and/or a fine of up to $10,000. If the accused as a prior conviction or if the victim was elderly, the crime can be escalated to a felony.
