Elements for Credit Fraud Charges in Texas

Texas Penal Code § 32.31 outlines the different scenarios that can be considered credit or debit card abuse. The statute outlines 11 different situations that can result in criminal charges. The following are the different actions a person can do to commit credit or debit card fraud:

  • Uses a factious credit card or debit card;
  • Uses another’s credit or debit card without their consent;
  • Receives a benefit that they know has been illegally obtained;
  • Buying a credit or debit card from another who is not the cardholder;
  • Steal a credit or debit card to use it, sell it, or transfer it to a person who is not the cardholder;
  • Had the intent to use another’s a credit or debit card;
  • Using or inducing another to use their credit or debit card for a good or service that is not within the cardholder’s financial ability;
  • Possessing two or more incomplete credit card or debit cards with intent to complete them without the cardholder’s consent;
  • If the alleged offender was authorized by an issuer to furnish goods or services on presentation of a credit card or debit card. It is credit card fraud if the alleged offender, with the intent to defraud the issuer, fails to furnish goods or services that they represent in writing to the issuer that they have furnished

The penalty for a credit or debit card is a state jail felony. A state jail felony is punishable by up to 24 months in jail, and a fine of up to $10,000.
