Fraud

Definition

Deception or artifice used to cheat or intentionally mislead. This is closely related to misrepresentation and concealment. Proof of fraudulent acts by an insured in procuring insurance may lead to a denial of coverage and voiding of the policy by the insurer. As a loss exposure, certain types of fraud can be insured by a commercial crime insurance policy.
