What is the difference between a fraudulent charge and a billing error?

Curious about Fraudulent charges

A fraudulent charge occurs when someone uses your credit card or bank account information to make unauthorized transactions or purchases. On the other hand, a billing error happens when there is a mistake in your account statement, such as being charged twice for the same item or being charged for an item you never received. While both can result in unauthorized charges on your account, a fraudulent charge is the result of criminal activity, while a billing error is typically a mistake made by the merchant or financial institution.
