A: I think you answered your own question. Your friend to use the credit card. That’s a crime because it wasn’t his card. Therefore, the government can charge him for using the card when he should not have use the card because it does not belong to him.

A: much more info needed.

i would not discuss a pending matter in an open forum like this as you may say something that gets your friend convicted.

sounds like it might have been a conspiracy.......or one of you taking the card and another using?
