How Many Years in Jail Do You Get for Credit Card Fraud?

If the thief uses a stolen credit card to buy goods or to get cash over the amount defined as a misdemeanor, the crime becomes a felony. Depending on the situation, thieves may face up to 15 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines. Possessing multiple stolen credit cards is also a felony but the class of felony varies based on the number of cards illegally in the thieves possession. You could be facing a year or more in prison, fines of up to $100,000, and a year of parole. In general, the more stolen financial devices that you are in possession of will lead to harsher penalties and fines.
