What constitutes business fraud in Illinois?
A legal claim for business fraud requires a plaintiff to prove that the accused made a misrepresentation of a material fact, done for the purpose of gaining agreement to the terms of a contract, and that the misrepresentation harms the deceived party. The misrepresented fact could be on the subject of the financial projections for an investment, the condition of a property for sale, the intention of the party to make full payment for a service, or any other subject significant enough to cause someone to enter into a contract with the fraudster. The lie must also be either intentional or made when the accused has good reason to know that the statement isn’t true.
What are common forms of business fraud?
There are countless forms of business fraud, with common examples including:
- Breach of express or implied warranty
- Investment fraud
- Misrepresentations made in the course of a sale of a business or merger
- Misappropriation of funds
- Fraudulent advertising
- Breach of contract
