What should I do if I’m being accused of making unauthorized purchases with my fiance’s credit card?

I don't understand this at all. My fiance lent me his credit card to make some purchases for the house and now I'm being charged with making unauthorized purchases. How is this possible? He gave me the card to do it.

    Who is charging you? Have you been arrested and arraigned? It sounds to me like this should be easy to clear up if you retain criminal defense counsel. If your fiance will sign an affidavit stating that he authorized use of his credit card, then the charges against you should be dismissed. Obviously, you should retain legal counsel to represent you in this matter. Good luck.

    Perhaps your fiance did not have the right to use the card in the first place. Your right to use it would only be as good as your fiance's. An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial. If you were to be found guilty, then an attorney can assist you with presenting mitigation, allocution, and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence.

    Your question requires an attorney consultation. It is not a simple question that can be answered on this type of forum. There are many factors that would need to be considered and evaluated. Evidently, your fiance had a change of heart and forgot to tell you. I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding your situation. He/she would then be in a better position to analyze your case and advise you of your options.
