Fraud exists when a person, on behalf of himself or others, has:
Knowingly, and with intent to deceive or defraud, made a false statement or representation to obtain benefits, obtain a continuance or increase of benefits or avoid a reduction of aid benefits.
Knowingly, and with intent to defraud, failed to disclose a fact which, if disclosed, could have resulted in the denial, reduction or discontinuance of benefits.
Accepted benefits knowing he/she is not entitled thereto, or accepted any amount of benefits knowing it is greater than the amount to which he/she is entitled.
For the purpose of obtaining, continuing, or avoiding a reduction or denial of benefits, made statements which he/she did not know to be true with reckless disregard for the truth.
