Fraud involves deception or dishonesty in workplace or personal situations such as obtaining property belonging to someone else, applying someone else’s property to your own use, causing a detriment to another person, gaining an advantage for a person, and causing a person to deliver property to another.
For fraudulent behaviour to have existed, there needs to have been an offender, a victim and an absence of control or safeguards. The penalty following a fraud conviction will depend on a variety of factors including the amount of money involved, the motive behind the offence, and the length of time of the fraudulent activity.
