What Constitutes a Fraud?
Fraud has been defined as “a deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual” or “gain by misrepresentation.” Fraud oftentimes occurs in the context of a partnership and can be devastating to a business. Civil fraud can have many faces. For example, the following are examples of fraudulent behavior actionable under Texas law: obtaining a contract by a material misrepresentation; corporate embezzlement; accounting fraud; misrepresentation by nondisclosure; and, investment fraud. This list is not exhaustive of the subcategories of fraudulent behavior and should not be used as a legal filter in determining if you may have a claim against a business partner, or someone who you feel may have defrauded you. A phone call to a Houston business fraud attorney at the Law Offices of Steven Tuan Pham to set up an appointment could save time and money in assessing your case.
Civil fraud litigation can be costly. Most often, the crux of the matter regarding civil fraud is the mental state of the defendant or his “intent.” The difficulty of proving intent is to present sufficient evidence for the fact finder to look inside the mind of the defendant to determine what s/he was thinking at the time(s) of the alleged wrongdoing. Many questions need answering such as was the alleged fraudulent acts done knowingly or by simple mistake? Was the fraud accomplished through just regularly conducting business in an assertive manner or was it intentionally misleading? Were there multiple parties involved in the fraud (conspiracy)?
Related Causes of Actions
Accompanying fraud claims can be breach of fiduciary duty claims since fraud is a breach of the fiduciary duty owed to the business by the offending partner or simply by one who is in a fiduciary relationship with another. Others who benefited from the fraud can be enjoined in litigation.
