Credit card fraud defence solicitors

Our lawyers have vast experience in defending people accused of credit card fraud. The way in which this fraud is being committed has developed over the years and now with the popularity of internet shopping it has become even more prevalent.

Credit card fraud is committed in a number of ways but is essentially the compromise of personal information from credit/debit or store cards. This can be personal information stolen from the card or theft of the card itself and then this information or card is used to purchase goods or to obtain unauthorised funds. The fraud could be from the outset as well by false applications for a credit card. This can happen where someone has been a victim of identity theft and their details are used to fraudulently apply for a credit card or to obtain funds.

Our experienced team of credit card fraud lawyers have the expertise and knowledge to look at the required level of detail to defend you, callus  on 01616 966 229 or complete our online enquiry form.

Skimming (cloning)

This is where a card can be duplicated by ‘skimming’ off the information held on the magnetic strip of a card. This is often done by using a PIN Entry Device (PED). This could be concealed in the pocket of the person you are paying or even attached to the payment machine. The card is then swiped through the PED and the information on the magnetic strip is copied. At the same time the PIN is observed or recorded to allow a cloned card to be made up and used fraudulently.

Internet fraud

With the upsurge in the use of the internet it has also increased the opportunity for people to commit credit card fraud through the obtaining of card details. False merchant sites have been set up with the sole aim of encouraging people to reveal their credit/debit card details with the security code. These are then used to fraudulently obtain goods or funds. 

If you are accused of this type of fraud you will need to seek expert advice to defend yourself. There will often be a bewildering amount of documents detailing thousands of alleged fraudulent transactions and you need to know that the solicitor defending you has detailed experience of dealing with that kind of documentation. It is very easy to miss important detail which is why you need an expert.

Our experienced team of credit card fraud solicitors have the expertise and knowledge to look at the required level of detail to defend you. Contact our expert fraud solicitors on 01616 966 229 or complete our online enquiry form.
