What is Credit Card Fraud?

Credit card fraud is a type of theft crime that occurs when a person fraudulently uses another person's credit card to make illegal purchases. In the past, people would commit credit card fraud by stealing another person's card and making transactions. Today, it is more common for people to obtain credit card information via the internet illegally, and to make their unlawful purchases online.

Credit card fraud is a crime that is currently on the rise, especially online, which is why people must do everything they can to protect themselves from this type of illegal activity. Usually, people do not implement protective measures until it is too late, and by then the theft has already occurred.

Types of Credit Card Fraud

Application Fraud

One kind of credit card fraud occurs before the recipient ever gets the card. Application fraud is when someone uses someone else’s information to make a new credit card in their name. Application fraud is difficult to do, but with the right tools, it is possible.

Card Not Present Fraud

Card not present (CNP) fraud is when someone obtains the expiration date and account number of someone else’s credit card. The person will then use the card online to purchase items in your name. Card not present fraud is hard to commit and equally hard to prosecute.

Assumed Identity

In assumed identity fraud, someone will use a temporary address and a false name to obtain a new credit card. Once they get the card, they will purchase items and send them to different locations for pickup, where they will gather their items and get rid of the card. This fraud doesn’t target a real person, and usually only hurts banks.
