According to Wisconsin law, if you use a credit card belonging to another individual “without that person’s consent, for the purposes of obtaining money, goods, services or anything else of value” then you have committed credit card fraud. Penalties for credit card fraud vary in Wisconsin, depending on the amount of transactions, and the value of each transaction. However, a conviction can typically entail a criminal record, fines and time in jail.
