Fraud

Fraud is, roughly, the crime or offense of deliberately deceiving another in order to damage him -- usually, to obtain property or services from him unjustly. [1]

Forms of fraud include confidence tricks such as the 419 fraud; false advertising; identity theft; forgery of documents or signatures; the selling of products of spurious use, such as quack medicines; creation of false companies or "long firms"; false insurance claims; and securities frauds such as pump and dump.
