Defense Against Credit Card Fraud Charges

Get the Help You Need to Protect Your Rights

It's a sign of the economic times that more and more crimes are related to unauthorized purchases with someone else's checking account or charge cards. Financial hardship is not a defense, but sometimes a proactive approach can resolve these cases without criminal charges and a theft conviction.

I am David G. Moore, a credit card fraud defense lawyer and former prosecutor who has handled such offenses on both sides of the law. I know the right way to approach retailers and other victims about resolution as a civil matter, and I also provide a vigorous defense if the victim presses charges.

Contact me right away if you or your son or daughter is accused of theft by check or unauthorized use. My Kalamazoo law practice covers the surrounding counties of Southwest Michigan, including providing representation for college students and youths.

Experienced Defense Against a Wide Range of Fraud Charges

Depending on the amount of money stolen, prior criminal convictions and other factors, check and credit card frauds can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. Either way, it can result in a criminal record that will have an adverse impact on education, employment, military status, housing and many other aspects of a person's future.

I have defended clients against a wide range of charges, including:

  • Forging stolen checks
  • Writing bad checks
  • Unauthorized use of a credit card
  • Selling stolen credit card numbers
  • ATM fraud and other card-skimming schemes
  • Identity theft
  • Embezzlement/employee theft
