Check & Credit Card Fraud

Boston Credit Card Fraud Defense Lawyers

Credit card fraud and other financial crimes are serious offenses in Massachusetts. Police and assistant district attorneys aggressively prosecute these types of charges, in part to deter others from committing credit card fraud and writing bad checks in the future. If you are facing charges of credit card fraud, larceny by check or another financial crime, get help from an experienced criminal defense lawyer – it may make all the difference.

Boston credit card fraud defense attorney David Yannetti and his associates represent individuals charged with all types of financial crimes, including larceny by check, identity theft and credit card fraud. Attorney Yannetti is an AV-rated* Boston defense lawyer with over two decades of criminal law experience and extensive credentials as a defense attorney. He has assembled a top-notch team of former prosecutors with similar backgrounds and experience.

Credit Card Fraud Defense

Police and prosecutors have the technological sophistication to effectively investigate credit card fraud, whether it allegedly occurs via the Internet or in person. The police may be able to follow the trail of an online credit card purchase back to the computer used in the transaction, to find a suspect in an online credit card fraud investigation. For credit card fraud cases occurring inside a store, the police may request security camera footage to show the person who signed for a specific purchase at a specific time.

Attorney Yannetti will conduct a thorough, independent investigation into the case against you – seeking both exculpatory evidence and possible misconduct by the police investigators.

In credit card fraud cases, it may not be enough to pay restitution to the alleged victim. Even if you pay back the amount of money allegedly stolen, a credit-card fraud conviction could still result in a significant jail, house-of-correction or state-prison sentence.

Check Fraud Defense

Bouncing a check can be a criminal offense if you wrote the check knowing that there was insufficient money in the account to cover the check. The formal name for this crime in Massachusetts is larceny by check. Typically, these cases first begin at a clerk magistrate’s hearing. It is important to stress that a clerk’s hearing is an excellent opportunity to prevent a criminal charge from being filed at all — avoiding further stress and further legal fees. For that reason, it is critical to hire a defense lawyer at the earliest possible juncture, if you are facing possible charges of larceny by check. Do not wait until after the clerk’s hearing to seek assistance with your defense.
