This paper addresses the issue of qualification of computer frauds with the use of credit cards. The development of credit cards market in Poland started in 1993. It has not left the criminal world uninterested. The Polish penal law looks rather good when referring to the prosecution and punishing of the perpetrators of these offences. The Polish Penal Code sets forth such offences like e.g. fraud (Art. 286), computer fraud (Art. 287), theft of a card entitling to withdrawn money from an automatic cash dispenser (Art. 278 ยง 5) falsification of documents (art. 270), capital fraud (Art. 297). The Act on Electronic Means of payment, dated 12 September 2002 aims at protecting owners of payment cards. It should also contribute to increasing the safety of payment cards trade as well as to strengthening customers' trust towards the modern means of payment.
