1 credit card account fraud on Wed Jun 22, 2011 7:02 pm

Good pm. Please help. I committed fraud at work in which i used our US customer's credit card account to purchase online. I was caught by the buyer and settled with them, paid the amount of the unit. An NBI agent came to our office and said that the website owner filed a complaint against me but the credit card owner did not. I was put into a preventive suspension by my employer while investigation is ongoing. I know what i did is a terminable offense.
Regarding the case filed against me by the website owner, do i need an attorney to help me out? Will i be put to jail? Is this case bailable? What should i do? Will i just hide or face them?
By the way, of all the transactions i bought on the website, i just redeemed 1 item and it was already paid by me. But I did not claim other items.
Please help. Thanks so much.

the applicable law is the access device act. for each transaction, it can be one count.

you do not have to admit to anything, but you can also reach out to the site owner and make an offer for his damages.

if they can link the transaction to you then that may be sufficient to establish guilt. my guess is that the nbi will file the case at the prosecutor's office.

you will receive a subpoena to file your counter affidavit.
