Fraud was a common law offence, long before the implementation of statutory laws. Credit card fraud, therefore, is the commission of an old offence, using a new tool. This study looks at the commission of this offence in three jurisdictions namely, England, India and Malaysia. The research has revealed that all these jurisdictions apply their traditional laws to curb this new method of committing fraud. Credit card fraud, nevertheless has posed new challenges to jurisdictions, since they are faced with new offences such as phishing, carding and pharming. Fraud Act 2006 governs fraudulent behaviours in the England and it is applicable on credit card fraudsters since January 2007. On the other hand, Malaysia and India till to date, rely on their respective Penal Codes to prohibit criminal misuse of credit cards. This study examines, if these laws are able to address the many facets of credit card fraud.
