Fraud is an act of deception for personal gain. Fraud takes many forms, and many fraud cases can be bewilderingly complex. Fraud is similar to theft, with the important distinction that consent to take the property (be it money or valuables) is given.

Clearly many, if not most, crimes contain an element of falsehood, cheating or fraud. Fraud occurs when a person makes a pretence that they know to be false, with the intention of deceiving the victim into acting in a manner in which he would not otherwise have acted – e.g. to part with valuables as a result.
