Bank, Credit Card or Mail Fraud Crimes Defense Lawyer

Using another person’s credit card, bank account or opening an account in their name can have serious consequences if you are charged and convicted of these crimes. These crimes are considered fraud in Alabama, and most are felony crimes, which can result in years in prison as well as other penalties. If you have been charged with possessing or using someone’s credit card or bank account without permission, you need a lawyer you can trust to fight your case.

Bank account, credit card and mail fraud crimes often overlap with other charges. Forgery, or using someone else’s signature, is often accompanied by the use of another person’s bank account or credit card. If you are accused of opening a credit card account in someone else’s name, you could face identity theft and mail fraud charges. All these crimes can be felony convictions that could change your life forever. You may face up to 10 years in prison or more, plus have a felony on your permanent record. These types of fraud charges should never be taken lightly, as you may be living with the consequence for the rest of your life.

Fighting Criminal Fraud Charges

One of the key elements in bank or credit card fraud is intent. The prosecution will need to show that you intended to commit fraud or steal from another person or entity. Even if you never used the account, if they can prove you intended to do so, you can be convicted. Consent is another factor that will impact your case. The prosecuting attorney will try to prove you did not have consent to use the credit card or account. An experienced defense attorney can look at the evidence against you and find weak areas in the prosecution’s case to prove innocence or have the charges reduced or dismissed.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
