    Default Unauthorized Use Of Credit Card

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: ohio
    my ex-boyfriend took my daughter's bank card and filled up his gas tank, which over drew her account so she got overdraft charges on top of what he used. she filed an affidavit with the bank, who subsequently returned the money to her account. do I have any recourse as far as filing charges against him for this?

    How did he get the card?

    If the bank credited her account, then the bank has received your daughter's affidavit and are aware that she is claiming that he used it without her authorization. They should be investigating the matter. Has she asked the bank what their policy is when something like this has happened?

    he took it from her wallet - he still lives in the house and refuses to leave - both of our names are on the lease, and i am trying to pursue any legal action i can that will eventually hopefully help me in getting a court ordered eviction.

    You don't mention what the bank is doing.

    Your daughter would be the person that would report the theft to the police if the bank hasn't already done so. Since your daughter has not suffered any damages, the bank will want the money that they are out and may have already made a report to the police.

    to my knowledge, the bank has done nothing, but i will check with my daughter on that.
    also, can you tell me if there is a statute of limitations for petty theft? i have printed out copies of the checks he took from my check book and cashed, but that was a year ago before i locked up the checks.
