Credit card fraud involves the use of credit cards and similar means of payment to fraudulently obtain goods or services. Credit cards and debit cards have become more common than cash today to complete consumer transactions. This is especially true given the explosion in the last decade of online retail transactions which are primarily accomplished through the use of credit or debit cards.
The increased use of credit and debit cards for consumer purchases has directly affected the courts and police upholding stricter punishment for these charges. Because of this, the potential penalty for these charges is often substantial.
