Credit Card Fraud Investigations

Whether you love them or hate them, credit cards are an integral part of today’s economy. Even if you have one, want to get one, or trying to get one paid off, at some point, you will or already have dealt with the pros and cons of credit cards. In today’s technological age, credit card fraud has seen a staggering climb of 35%. Though most banks or other financial institutions do a relatively good job in this department, many fraud cases slip through the cracks.

Credit Card Fraud uses your account information to purchase goods, access money, and retain services. Credit card numbers are stolen in a variety of ways. Because of this, private investigators and law enforcement are discovering new ways that criminals are going about this. As a victim of credit card fraud, you will lose money, be under a large amount of stress, and even suffer a reduction in your credit rating.


Theft of your credit information can be taking the card itself, data related to a purchase, which can be card number, security code, expiration date, and other personal information. It can also include:

  • Pick-pocketing
  • Robbery
  • Deception
  • Covert surveillance to capture numbers without the owner knowing
  • Computer Spyware
  • Phone Tapping
  • Photocopying the actual card
  • Gaining access to the company’s databases
  • Looking over your shoulder during a transaction.
  • Employee Theft
  • Other Electronic means

You may not know that your credit data was compromised. Because of the nature of the crime, thieves can get away with fraudulent purchases, get cash from ATMs or banks, or open a new account. In most cases, the actual card isn’t stolen. This is what makes scammers so successful.


Marc J. Tropeano PI and his team of private investigators at Nationwide Legal Investigations are experienced in aggressively investigating con-artist criminals and scammers.

A private investigator will also have the right tools for the case, expertise, and freedom to find the information needed.
