Hello there --


Statutes of limitations for felony theft and/or identity fraud are generally 7 to 10 years for criminal prosecution -- and the time does not start to run until the last time the card was used (not from the date of opening the account). If you can provide me with some more information on the situation, I can give you a more specific answer and give you some direction on what to do from here, if you are within the statutes.
