Fraud and breach of trust are criminal offences!


You feel abused and you are helpless in this situation!

Concerning fraud, article 313-1 of the Penal Code states that “fraud is the act of deceiving a person or a legal entity, either by using a false name or a false capacity, or by abusing a true capacity, or by using fraudulent maneuvers, and thus determining to his detriment or to the detriment of a third party, to hand over funds, securities or any other property, to provide a service, or to agree to an act that creates an obligation or discharge.

Fraud is punishable by five years imprisonment and a fine of 375,000 euros.”

Breach of trust is defined by Article 314-1 of the Penal Code. It states that “breach of trust is when a person embezzles, to the detriment of another, funds, securities or any other property that have been given to him and that he has accepted on the condition that he returns them, represents them or uses them for a specific purpose.

Breach of trust is punishable by three years imprisonment and a fine of 375,000 euros.”

The Penal Code therefore sets out the constituent elements of these offences. Despite the fact that they both concern the fraudulent appropriation of another’s property by deception, they are quite distinct and this is what can be seen by analyzing their fundamental elements.
