What is Fraud

Fraud is when somebody creates a lure, or good deal to take your money. People will often create a fake account on a website such as: Ebay, Amazon, or Craigslist. After the account is made, the person will post items at great prices to lure in customers. After the item is sold, the seller will not send the item and will cut communication with the customer.
