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.
