In order to prevail with a fraud claim under fraudulent misrepresentation, the plaintiff needs to prove that the defendant intentionally provided false or misleading information. The plaintiff's reliance on this misinformation must have caused harm to the plaintiff.
An example of fraudulent misrepresentation would be a business or individual including false or misleading financial information an attempt to attract investors. If the investor relied on these financial statements when it decided to make the investment, and the business then fails or defaults, the investor may have a claim against the business for fraudulent misrepresentation.
In addition to providing false information, the requirements for fraudulent misrepresentation can also be met by failing to disclose information. This might happen if a seller of real estate, for example, is aware that the property contains a material defect and fails to disclose this information to the buyer.
