DEFINITIONS v PERCEPTIONS Legal Quasi-legal FRAUD Corporate Academic ? Social / Moral / Ethical Explanatory Notes Legal: The issue of definitive requirements in law to establish a fraud case MUST be your working ‘anchor’ (not to interfere with of course multi‐jurisdictional fraud cases, which are the ones often left unchallenged) and also will raise the debate if fraud is actually present. For example in US law, a financial gain for the offender and loss for the victim must be present. However, in UK law this is not so because the offence of fraud is now ‘offender’ focused, and a ‘risk’ of loss to the victim will substantiate a case of fraud to answer – legally.

Lying and the problem with words Fraud cases can involve complicated financial transactions conducted by (to reluctantly quote the vernacular) ‘white collar criminals’, and professionals with specialised knowledge, underpinned by criminal intent. An unscrupulous investment broker may present clients with an opportunity to purchase shares in precious metals, for example. Status as a professional investor gives credibility, which can lead to a justified belief among potential clients. Those who believe the opportunity to be legitimate contribute substantial amounts of cash and receive seemingly authentic bonds in return, which of course are totally fraudulent.

When moving illicit money, offenders see trade as an opportunity. The main method by which criminals launder money is through value transfer of goods traded. For example, if drug traffickers in Mexico want to launder money, they would consider entering a trade transaction by raising a letter of credit. They could set up a fictitious import company in the United States or other jurisdiction that would ‘buy’ goods from an exporter in Mexico and pay higher than normal prices. The trade documents would reflect the value of the goods being shipped.
