Expert representation by our fraud solicitor at ABV Solicitors
02 Jan 2023

Fraud is criminal activity that involves the intentional perversion of the truth or false misrepresentation for financial gain which results in financial loss for another person, company or organisation. You may find that you make a promise to someone without the intention to fulfil that promise or make a statement, knowing that the statement was false at the time you made it. This is criminal activity. In such cases your victim may argue that you entered into a contract which you never intended to fulfil, which makes you guilty of fraud or they could claim damages as a result of a false representation that you made and sue you for damages.
