Credit Card Transaction Record Laundering

Many people make credit card payments on a regular basis and become so used to doing so that they forget to look at what exactly they are paying for. There are times when a person may be paying for an item or service that he or she never purchased. Also, credit card owners sometimes may claim to a credit card institution that they purchased an item or service from a certain vendor when they actually did not. Both these cases are considered credit card transaction record laundering.

Unauthorized Transaction by Vendor

Credit card authorized vendors can claim that they sold an item or service to a person. When a vendor did not sell to a person and yet asks for payment for the item or service, he or she has made an unauthorized transaction and may be charged with credit card transaction record laundering.

Unauthorized Transaction by Credit Card Owner & Vendor

If the owner of the credit card works in association with a vendor in order to use the vendor to defraud the credit card company into thinking that he or she made a purchase from the vendor when he or she did not, he or she can be charged with credit card transaction record laundering. The vendor may be charged as well. Credit card owners who do such acts will try to obscure payments and purchases to avoid certain taxes or audits.
