To cheat. The offence of intentionally deceiving someone in order to gain an unfair or illegal advantage (financial, political or otherwise). Countries consider such offences to be criminal or a violation of civil law.

Why it matters

Governments, companies and civil society organisations must have efficient internal reporting channels and follow-up mechanisms to detect fraud, corruption and gross mismanagement inside an organisation.
