Fraud, defined as “intentional deception made for personal gain,” is the very act of a wolf dressing up in sheep’s clothing. It’s when someone pretends to be someone else, or to be authorized to do something the fraudster is not authorized to do. A student copies another’s homework, a sumo wrestler throws a match, an online gambler cheats with illegal information as part of an inside job, fake Twitter accounts spread misinformation about a political candidate, or a death is faked in order to make a claim against a life insurance policy. All such crimes have been detected analytically.
