Misrepresentation is a theft crime. Under Wisconsin laws, misrepresentation can be charged as a crime or pursued by non-criminal law suit against the person alleged to have misrepresented the facts. Wisconsin law requires proof of transfer of property Under Wisconsin laws, title to or ownership of property must transfer from the actual owner to another person or entity to prove the crime of misrepresentation. Conversely, under federal law, an actual transfer of property need not occur; rather, federal fraud charges can be brought against a person upon the mere allegation of an intent to commit a fraud. Fraud, intent and conspiracy charges are commonly found hand-in-hand in federal prosecutions, and one of the reasons for this is the ease with which federal charges can be brought without proof that property has transferred from its owner to another. Criminal misrepresentation Criminal misrepresentation occurs when a person unintentionally defrauds a property owner. Misrepresentation does not occur if the person alleged to have committed the fraud had no intent to defraud the property owner. Misrepresentation also does not occur if the defendant honestly believed the facts were as he thought, even though he was incorrect in that belief. And it does not occur if the victim would have transferred title to the property regardless of the fraud. Distinguishing misrepresentation, fraud & false pretenses Criminal misrepresentation and criminal false pretenses differ based upon the intent and belief of the person causing the transfer of property. Basically, if the intent of the person accused of fraud was to fraudulently cause property to be transferred, then the crime can be charged as false pretenses; conversely, if the fraud was unintentional, then the crime can be charged as misrepresentation.
