Fraud

In criminal law, fraud is the crime or offense of deliberately
deceiving another in order to damage them — usually, to obtain property
or services from him or her unjustly. Fraud can be accomplished through
the aid of forged objects. In the criminal law of common law
jurisdictions it may be called “theft by deception,” “larceny by
trick,” “larceny by fraud and deception” or something similar. Fraud
can be committed through many methods including mail, wire, phone and
the Internet.
