Fraud is a crime of dishonesty. Under the common law of Scotland, a fraud is committed where it can be shown that a pretence or false representation achieves a definite practical result. It is not necessary, therefore, to show that money, goods or services were obtained by any false pretence, although that is by far the most common scenario.

Some offences involving fraud are prosecuted under statute such as Benefit Fraud which is covered by the Social Security Administration Act 1992.  In cases of benefit fraud, you can be prosecuted for fraudulently obtaining benefits by making false declarations about your circumstances or if you fail to declare a change in your circumstances which affects your entitlement to benefits. Fraud can be a serious charge. If you need legal advice, we can assess your eligibility for Legal Aid.
