My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
A guy that I know gave one of his friends a ride to the bank to with draw some money out of the atm machine. When they pulled up the the bank the guy gave my friend his atm card and pin number. My friend withdrew the money out of the atm machine. About a month later my friend was arrested and charged with financial transaction fraud. Come to find out the card belonged to someone else, whose car supposedly had been broken into. The person whose card it was say that she did not know neither one of the guys. The lady is not even from the same town as the guys. If her car was broken into why didnt she cancel out her credit cards? My question is how would they guy get her pin number if she did not give it to him. Will they actually be able to charge him with transaction fraud even if there was a witness who was also in the car? Why didnt they charge him for breaking into the car if they charged him for making the transaction even though he had a pin number? You cant use someone elses debit or credit card at the atm machine without a pin number.
