WHAT IS THE MEANING OF FRAUD?

Fraud can be best described as an act that is done with the purpose of deceiving others. A person committing fraud can do it knowingly or recklessly but fraud falls under the dishonesty clause and is considered a crime.

CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH YOU ARE CONSIDERED FRAUDULENT:
Under section 409 of the law, “Any person who defrauds another with an intention to cheat, by lying or any other fraudulent means is concluded to be guilty of a fraudulent offence.”
The conditions that govern the fraudulent offences category are:

  • If the accused obtained property from another by fraudulent means.
  • If an individual induced and influenced a person to deliver property to another person.
  • If a person gains some kind of monetary benefit from his fraudulent actions, for himself or for others.
  • If a person causes a detriment (monetary or otherwise) to another with fraudulent intentions.
  • If the accused induced another to do an action that was uncomplimentary.

ELEMENTS OF THE OFFENCE:
The offence of fraud concerns the following:
To obtain property of another by fraudulent means or to persuade someone to deliver property to another individual;
To gain a benefit or cause loss or otherwise, to another person
To persuade or cause someone to withdraw from acting within the law
To persuade someone to withdraw from an action that the person is lawfully entitled to do.
These are the most common types of fraud committed where someone gains a benefit by defrauding another. In any case, you should consult a good Criminal Defence Lawyer in Perth.
