Fraud is a Civil Tort that literally comes in all shapes and sizes. Actions in Fraud may occur in minor consumer product transactions giving rise to nationwide class action lawsuits, or may occur in business transactions between private parties. California's Unfair Competition laws are designed to protect and deter unfair, fraudulent or unlawful business practices.
When fraud occurs in a business transaction it can take many forms such as fraudulent concealment, false promise, intentional misrepresentation, or fraud in the inducement. These are all distinct causes of action with evidentiary variations.
