Question: I recently had a consumer at the store I work at give me her husbands credit card. I refused to use it since it was not her credit card. Is it legal for the wife to use the husbands credit card?
In the Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 13 is the criminal code, Chapter 21 discusses credit card fraud. According to the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) § 13-2105, A person commits fraudulent use of a credit card if the person:
