Abuse of Credit Card or Debit Card

A credit card is more than just a small card that issues out money on credit. A credit card is also a link to a cardholder and issuer, and it is a device used to gain and lose credit. Reported cases of insurance credit card or debit card fraud have been a factor in rising interest rates. When a person uses a credit card in a fraudulent manner in the state of Texas, he or she may be charged with credit card abuse or debit card abuse.

Obtaining and Using a Bad Credit Card

There are various methods criminals can execute to commit credit card fraud. Criminals may attempt to benefit from transactions that involve purchasing items or services on a card that has expired, been canceled, or has been used in a circumstance where the issuer has insufficient funds. In addition, a person commits a crime when he or she uses or attempts to use a fake card with a fake account number. Obtaining and using a fraudulent card is as illegal as obtaining items or services with the card.


Criminals who steal credit cards or debit cards will attempt to use cards almost immediately after it has been stolen and usually for a brief period of time. Criminals may also try to purchase items via the Internet with a card and share the information with other individuals. Individuals who are caught using a stolen credit card can be charged with credit card or debit card abuse.
