A person is guilty of fraud by false representation if he:
made a false representation
knowing that the representation was or might be untrue or misleading
with intent to make a gain for himself or another, to cause loss to another or to expose another to risk of loss.
The offence is entirely focused on the conduct of an individual. It is complete as soon as the individual makes a false representation, provided that it is made with the necessary dishonest intent. It does not matter whether anyone is aware of the representation, or is deceived, or whether any property is gained or lost.
A representation means any representation as to fact or law. It includes a representation as to the state of mind of a person making the representation. A representation can be expressed or implied which means that it can be stated in words or communicated by conduct. By way of an example, a representation is implied by conduct when a person uses a credit card dishonestly as they are falsely representing that they have the authority to use the card for a transaction.
