Missouri lawmakers pushing to crack down on credit card theft

Posted: Updated:

Missouri lawmakers will consider cracking down on people convicted of stealing your credit and debit card information.

Current Missouri law considers credit card theft as a form of stealing and if it’s less than $750 dollars than the crime is a misdemeanor.

A proposal filed two weeks ago in Jefferson City calls for theft from a debit or credit card to be considered a felony with a punishment of at least one year in prison.

Central Missouri Lawmaker, Representative Tim Remole recently has his credit card information hacked which prompted him to file the legislation.
