    How did one use the card in error? Mixing credit cards up or used it and was caught. It all depends on the entire facts, not just the word error.

    You have to intentionally use the card unlawfully in order to commit the crime. You can't accidentally embezzle.

    It could be considered theft or credit card abuse, but if you have paid it immediately, it is unlikely anyone would accept charges.
