Attorney Diego defends people in Denver against credit card fraud and related allegations. If the police allege that you use a credit card, debit card, or other financial device without the owner’s permission, or used that card knowing it has expired or been cancelled, you may be charged with the unauthorized use of a financial transaction device. The severity of this charge depends upon the value obtained by the individual using the card: it is a class 1 misdemeanor if the value is less than one thousand dollars, a class 5 felony if the value obtained is more than one thousand dollars but less than twenty thousand, and a class 3 felony if the value obtained is more than twenty thousand dollars.
Credit card or debit card fraud charges can be very serious, and may have a detrimental impact on your ability to seek employment in the future. Should you be charged with unauthorized use of a financial transaction device, or fear that you may be charged, please contact defense attorney Kimberly Diego to discuss your situation today.
