Fraud is probably the largest area of crime within the business sector. It is defined as ”the bringing about of any practical result by a false pretence … The victim must have been deceived by the false pretence and have acted on the basis of it.” This might involve making a false representation, wrongfully failing to disclose information, abusing a position of trust or obtaining services with the intent to avoid payment.
Examples of fraud include: credit card fraud, embezzlement, forgery…
