Where you lie, twist the truth, or don't tell important facts so you can get other people's money or things.

Fraud comes in many forms.

Example: A stranger sold Alex a new-looking bike for $200, but didn't tell Alex it had lots of rust covered by putty and paint.

Example: Sam was paid only $10 for a watch that the dealer knew was really a valuable antique.

Example: Some companies promise to give you a great career as a model if you pay $500 for their course, but there is really no job at the end.

Example: Someone buys your bike but sends you too much money as a cheque. They ask for the extra money to be sent back right away. A few days later the original cheque is rejected by the bank and you have lost your bike and any cash you sent them.
