Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
In general a business can't be charged with a crime. You could sue the business for the unlawful taking of your funds. Or if there's some employee in a business that is using his job as a means to commit identity theft, without the company's knowledge, that person can be prosecuted for his fraud.
Typically, however, you'd see the unauthorized charges on your card, report the crime to your police, report the unauthorized use of your credit card number to the card carrier, cancel your card and open up a new one. The card carrier would go after the thief for reimbursement.
