Looking for second opinion: Please, the person answering

Looking for second opinion:Please, the person answering needs to have experience on credit card false information application. Effective experience please.Hi, like year ago I opened a credit card, but I selected resident and I am not (I am a legal immigrant and I have a valid SSN). I did it because to me were obvious that I was living in the USA in my own house (paid it in cash). So to me that was the meaning of resident. Now I applied to a home equity credit line by phone and then I found that I am a alien non resident (I am legally in the USA, with a visa F1 because I am teaching as well as obtaining my phd). After finding this I closed the 3 cards, and I payed the whole balance. That is a mistake that I tried to solve right now. I have been an excellent client, never late, I use the miles and keep gaining miles because we spend a lot. Also, when my income went down I also reported that. When I applied, that year I got 24.000 from the usa employer and around 50.000 from my home country. This year I stoped receiving those 50.000 so I changed my information to 26.000 (I got some extra).I would like to know the consequences of doing this and how it change that if when found it I immediately paid everything an closed the account.I know what the law says, I know is fraud. However, I have read about different cases, some even without incarceration.I also know that the chances of been prosecuted by a bank are closely null if I did not have any pending balance. One of my concerns is that I used the rewards, I also got more because I pended more over time, the I used.If I go to court with a case like this (3 credit cards), but any kind of unpaid balance, and the cards already closed. What should be the more likely outcome?As some extra info, before opening this 3 credit cards I got one from each one of my two banks, where they effectively know that I am not resident. They know that because they did all the application in the office, I just signed.
