Credit Card Theft (N.J.S.A. 2C:21-6) in New Jersey can take many forms. Most commonly, the charge simply reflects the allegation that you have taken someone else’s credit card without their consent.
Possession of more than two cards belonging to others, or credit cards issued to two other people, is considered a violation of the Credit Card Theft law.
Other ways to violate the Credit Card Theft statute include creating fake credit cards, selling credit cards that belong to others, or signing another person’s credit card.
Credit Card Theft is not prosecuted the way that most theft crimes in New Jersey are handled, in that the charge is not related to the monetary value of goods taken.
Credit Card Theft is a Fourth Degree Crime, comparable to a felony conviction, and carries a potential sentence of 18 months in prison, and a $10,000 fine.
These are serious charges that demand a serious defense. Attorney Matthew Reisig defends people all around New Jersey facing charges of Credit Card Theft.
