Credit card fraud can include the use of forged cards, the physical theft of a card, the theft of data, the use of that data to make online purchases, and the unauthorized use of information to obtain new credit. The charges associated with these offenses include credit card theft, possession of stolen credit cards, unlawful use of a credit card, forgery, and identity theft.
