What Is A Fraud Charge?

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 including, but not restricted to, insurance fraud and bank fraud.

If the alleged fraud relates to a victim who is known to the accused, there may be breach of contract considerations. This requires special attention to defend.
