Fraud is the use of deception to obtain some kind of benefit. The term "false pretense" is simply another way of using the word deception. Fraud is a broad offence and can relate to many different situations, ranging from insurance fraud to bank fraud. Fraud and theft are two criminal offences that are closely related and often overlap.

In any fraud case, there is the consideration of whether or not there is a breach of trust, where someone allegedly exploits a relationship he or she has with the victim in order to take advantage of that person or the situation. Of course, there are many other considerations in fraud cases, all of which depend on the circumstances of the situation.
