Skimming, or cloning of credit card information, is a commonly used method to commit credit card fraud. A card is duplicated by physically “skimming” the information contained on its magnetic strip, while the owner of the card is closely observed while using it so that their PIN number can be identified. In relation to online use, credit card fraud often takes place through the setting up of false merchant sites so that credit card details can be obtained, with shoppers believing the site to be genuine and voluntarily inputting their information. Regardless of the background to your case, Wilford Smith's Fraud Solicitors can help you to vigorously defend yourself against allegations of credit card fraud.
