Frequently asked questions.

Sentencing for credit card fraud is determined by the Fraud Act 2006. If you are charged with credit card fraud with others, you can be prosecuted and sentenced under common law for Conspiracy to Defraud.

The maximum sentence for fraud is 10 years’ imprisonment. Any sentence will depend on two key factors:

  1. The harm caused by the offence – for example, the financial losses suffered by the victim.
  2. Your part in the alleged crime – if you played a leading role in the crime, you will likely be given a lengthier sentence compared to the sentence handed down if you played a peripheral role.
  • You have a right to know what offence(s) you have been arrested for
  • You have the right to know the case against you in broad terms
  • You have the right to legal representation
  • You have the right to refuse to answer questions from the police

There are three likely outcomes following your arrest on suspicion of credit card fraud:

  1. You will be released and no further action will be taken against you.
  2. The police will release you under investigation.
  3. You will be charged with a specific offence.

If you are charged with credit card fraud, you could be released on bail or remanded in custody to await a trial date.
