Our Richmond Criminal Lawyers Explain Credit Card Theft
The following are all examples of credit card theft:
- Any person who takes, obtains, or withholds a credit card or credit card
number — knowing that it is illegally possessed and without the
card owner's consent — is guilty of credit card theft.
- Anyone who possess a credit card or number — knowing it to have been
lost, misplaced, or the result of a mistake— who intends to use,
sell, or transfer the card to anyone other than the cardholder is guilty
of credit card theft.
- The buying of selling of a credit card or credit card number not belonging to you.
Credit card or credit card number theft is considered grand larceny. Grand
larceny is punishable by 1 to 20 years' imprisonment and a fine of
up to $2,500.00, either or both. This offense and the penalties associated
with it can be found in the following Code of Virginia Sections: §
18.2-192 and § 18.2-95.
