White collar crimes: 3 men arrested for alleged credit card fraud

Being accused of credit card fraud is serious, and people in Michigan or elsewhere will be wise to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. In fact, that applies to any accusations of white collar crimes. This will likely be the first steps taken by three men in another state who were recently arrested and charged with credit card fraud.

The arrests took place on a recent Tuesday evening after police received reports about several Home Depot stores that were victimized of credit card fraud. Reportedly, they learned the identity of the Home Depot store that was the next target. An arrest report indicates that law enforcement arrived at that store to find two suspects inside the store and the third one waiting in a car.

All three men -- ages 24, 22 and 21 -- were arrested and their car was impounded, to be searched upon receiving a search warrant. Investigators allege that the men used faked identities to obtain credit cards with which they purchased merchandise at various Home Depot stores. The goods were later sold in New York at much lower prices. Police say, in a similar case in October, a 23-year-old man was arrested for purchasing merchandise valued over $15,000 by using fake driver's licenses. He was later convicted and ordered to pay restitution along with a prison sentence of six months.

When someone in Michigan is arrested and charged with credit card fraud or any other white collar crimes, legal counsel can help. An attorney who has experience in this complicated field of the law can protect the legal rights of the defendant. The lawyer can also advocate for him or her throughout ensuing legal proceedings with the goal of achieving the best possible outcome for the client.
