Fraud and Deceit


Fraud is an intentional misrepresentation, deceit, or concealment of a material fact known to the person committing the fraud, with the intention to deprive you of your property or legal rights, or that otherwise causes you an injury. (California Code of Civil Procedure section 3294(c)(3)).

If a person or business has wronged you by committing fraud, causing you to lose money, you may have a legal right to sue them.
