What is ‘Conspiracy to Defraud’?
A conspiracy is an agreement between two or more persons to commit an unlawful act, or to commit a lawful act by unlawful means; the former applies to conspiracy to defraud.
The offence does not depend on the conspirators committing the act; rather it depends upon them agreeing to carry it out. It is enough for the conspirators to know that their actions will result in the defrauding of the intended victim.
What penalties are attached to ‘Conspiracy to Defraud’?
A conspiracy to defraud conviction has the potential to result in a custodial sentence not exceeding ten years, a fine, or both.
