While credit card fraud and other white collar criminal charges do not involve violent acts, the consequences can be equally severe. You need an attorney who is not only skilled in the courtroom, but also proactive in building a strong, fact-based defense. Far too much is at stake to put your case in the hands of a lesser-experienced attorney who is quick to plea bargain.
At The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen, our founder — Corey I. Cohen — is dedicated to fighting for the best outcome on your behalf. He possesses not only experience in this specific area of white collar criminal law, but also insight as a former prosecutor. He knows firsthand how his opposition establishes criminal cases against his clients. Corey is also a member of the federal Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel for the Middle District of Florida.
Orlando Credit Card Fraud Defense Lawyer
Credit card fraud can take various forms:
- Mail nonreceipt fraud results when a new or replacement card is intercepted and not received by the customer.
- Charge-back fraud crimes are based on claims that a transaction noted on a credit card bill is not authentic when in fact it is.
- Skimming occurs when a merchant copies and sells a customer's credit card payment to a black market to make and use illegal copies.
- Online credit card fraud involves online transactions from hackers monitoring a customer's entry into the system and taking the information without his or her knowledge.
Improved security and cutting-edge technology have gone a long way to prevent these crimes and assist with identifying perpetrators. However, technical systems can be rife with errors, resulting in misunderstandings that lead to wrongful charges against our clients.
