• Presents or uses a credit or debit card that is stolen, forged, canceled, or obtained as a result of fraud or deception;
• Presents or uses an account, credit, or billing number that the person is not authorized to use or that was obtained as a result of fraud or deception; or
• Presents or uses a form of legal identification that the person is not authorized to use.
