My nephew used a credit card posted online by someone knowingly giving away their info. He charged the credit card but almost immediately cancelled the orders after submitting them. The order total was around $150. Others commenting on the post said that they were using the card as well. (My nephew is a minor under the age of 16)
and you think he shouldn't be charged criminally .....why? You can't possibly believe that someone was on the internet giving away their credit card info so miscreants like your nephew could buy toys at thier expense do you? What you SHOULD be more worried about, if its your business to worry about at all, is why his your nephew did such a heinous criminal thing and his parents aren't addressing the issue. Now - WILL is different than SHOULD or CAN, so the only way to know the answer to that is time.

Knowing Port Orange police, this may be filed in juvenile court unless your nephew has prior juvenile offenses. They will eventually get this info.
His crime could be classified as an "attempt" but the punishment is the same. These numbers are on the dark web and the police will want to know how he accessed the dark web, as it is not easily done, but once people on the dark web capture his email address, there are any number of adult criminals who can and will attempt to use him to do their own dirty work. The theory is that he is a juvenile and can't get in trouble. That is simply not true.
