Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Criminal fraud is usually reserved for a fraud perpetuated against the state or federal government (bankruptcy fraud, tax fraud, mail fraud, etc.).
Thus, this likely would be a matter of civil fraud or intentional misrepresentation. So, the person could file a civil suit for damages, but it's not likely something that would be criminally chargeable.
