Credit Card Fraud in Orlando

Credit card fraud is one of the most expensive types of fraud in Orlando, Florida, and it is also one of the most difficult to prosecute. In today's crime scene, credit card fraud is a crime that encompasses a wide-range of theft, and is commonly described as using fraudulent methods to complete a transaction or payment.

Credit card fraud can occur with a dishonest employee copying credit card numbers to obtain funds from their account, or creating fake credit cards using the victim's information. The Federal Trade Commission handles all credit card and identity loss, and in the year 2009 reported a 21 percent increase in identity theft, which has remained constant in the past three years.

Orlando is one of the financial transaction capitals of the world, with over 51 million tourists coming to this city every year from all over the planet. This brings the number of transactions to extremely high number in any given time period, and theft investigators need time to bring a fraud case to the criminal defense. The cost of fraudulent transactions reaches over well over $850 million a year, of your money, according to the FTC.

Recently two brothers were caught in Orlando in a fraudulent credit card scam that stretched across the country. With information from the theft investigator, who had been observing their credit card activity in certain stores, they were arrested and their attorney had little defense to their actions. Any criminal defense lawyer relies on the information that he or she receives from their crime sources, such as the Police Department in Florida and also any information that law firm can find.

It is a good idea to make a list of all your account numbers and to destroy all statements that show your account number. If you suspect fraudulent activity, contact your credit card company first, and then your local police office.
