    They could report you to the police and the prosecutor could charge you with fraudulent use of a financial transaction device or more commonly known as credit card fraud. If it is your first offense, you may qualify for a diversion program or a sentencing option that will keep the matter off your public record. Jail is possible, but probably not very likely. It just all depends on what the prosecutor and victim is seeking and how the judge normally handle such cases. If charged, make sure you are represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
