It all just seems so easy. You use a simple credit card or write down someone else’s credit card number and use it to buy some valuable items. No one is the wiser, and no one gets hurt, right? It isn’t really that big of a deal, right? Companies have insurance to cover those kinds of crimes, right?
Actually, credit card fraud is a big deal. Whether or not a company has insurance to cover a theft, credit card fraud is a crime. Yes, this kind of fraud is considered a “white collar” type of offense, in that it usually takes place in a business or corporate environment. Even though white collar crime, like credit card fraud (which is the unauthorized use of a credit card to purchase valuable items) is considered a “victimless,” (non-violent) crime, these crimes are serious criminal offenses that come with strict penalties by the US government. The US government does not shy away from prosecuting cases of credit card fraud. This type of fraud is theft and those who commit it can expect to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law if they are not adequately represented by expert counsel.
