Credit Card Theft
Phoenix Credit Card Fraud Attorney
Defense for Credit Card Theft Charges in AZ
Credit card theft crimes are on the rise in the Phoenix area, with law enforcement taking strict action against this type of crime. Much of this type of crime is committed over the internet, with emails and sites set up to unwittingly capture people's credit card information in order to sell it to others or to use to purchase goods fraudulently.
It can also be done at local restaurants or shops where someone sets up a scheme to steal credit card information from the merchant. When such a crime is committed over the internet, there are often cyber-crime units set up to handle them, which involve not only local law enforcement, but state and federal as well.
Because many of these crimes cross state lines, federal officials can become involved in their investigation, leading to an even more aggressive investigation and prosecution. If you find yourself in this position, you will need a Phoenix credit card fraud attorney that can be just as aggressive when defending your rights.
