An individual is guilty of fraud if they are in breach of three main fraud offences:

  • Fraud by failing to disclose information where there is a legal duty to disclose it.
  • Fraud by abuse of position. Abuse of position applies where a person occupies a position in which they are expected to safeguard, or not to act against, the financial interests of another person. A person may abuse that position through an act or omission.
