The Fraud Act 2006 creates a new general offence of fraud with a maximum custodial sentence of ten years; replacing all previous deception offences as detailed under the Theft Acts 1968-1996. This new offence can be committed in three ways;
- By false representation - By failing to disclose information - By abuse of position
The Act also creates new offences of obtaining services dishonestly, and replaces the existing 'going equipped' offence, to criminalise the act of possessing or making material for use in frauds. This new Blackstone's Guide provides the full text of the Fraud Act 2006 and extracts from related relevant legislation, together with expert narrative. The authors provide detailed and practical commentary logically following the structure of the Act, on the effect of the legislation, its probable interpretation, and its impact on the existing law of dishonesty.
