    Extortion (California Penal Code Section 518) is generally known as “blackmail.” Extortion is the obtaining of money or property from another by threats of future harm. Threats may include threats of bodily harm to the victim or a third party or demanding money from the victim.

    Extortion in California State Court is punishable by two to four years in state prison and or fines of up to $10,000 or more. Attempted extortion can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or felony (known as a wobbler offense) and is punishable by up to one year in the county jail or 16 months to three years in state prison. Extortion can also be prosecuted as a federal offense under the Hobbs Act. Extortion involving demands made by individuals, as well as government officials using telephones, U.S. mail, the internet, or any instrumentality of interstate commerce would fall under the Hobbs Act and be prosecuted by the federal government. The maximum punishment for federal extortion is twenty years imprisonment.

    Credit card fraud is a form of identity theft that involves an unauthorized taking of another’s credit card information for the purpose of charging purchases to the account or removing funds from it.

    Application fraud refers to the unauthorized opening of credit card accounts in another person’s name. Account takeovers typically involve the hijacking of an existing credit card account by obtaining enough information about a victim to change the account’s billing address.
