If someone uses your credit card number to purchase something on the internet,and the person agrees to pay the charges and does....can the credit card holder still prosecute for fraud? I live in North carolina



Yes. Paying the bill does not magically make the crime "never happened". It does, however, reduce the likelihood the DA will bother to prosecute.

This is not legal advice and you are not my client. Double check everything with your own attorney and your state's laws.
