Abstract: This work aims to disclose some of the new additions envisaged within the Draft Organic Law that is set to amend Organic Law 10/1995, dated 23 November, of the Penal Code, presented to Congress on 15 January 2007.2 Specifically, an analysis will be carried out of the proposed reforms relating to the falsification, trafficking and illegal use of credit and debit cards, the legal-penal handling of which gives rise to certain interpretive difficulties. Indeed, the current panorama sometimes obliges us to choose between the impunity derived from the strict application of the principle of legality and the forced adaptation of traditional models to new situations for which they were never truly designed, with the subsequent risk to the principles of penal legality and proportionality that this may entail. Bearing in mind that these principles constitute not only the extrinsic limit, but also, and most importantly, the intrinsic foundation of penal intervention, the changes implied by the emerging criminal methods developed within the context of the information society must not be allowed to translate into an overly-broad interpretation of the penal type. So, whenever draft reform measures arise that may reduce such tensions, it should be considered whether the proposed measures provide sufficient protection against cases of falsification, trafficking and illegal use of bank cards, and whether future regulations may affect the legal-penal classification of such behaviour as the manipulation of authentic bank cards or the illegal withdraw of money from cash machines.
