A: FRAUD occurs when all of the following elements exist:

* an individual or an organization intentionally makes an untrue representation about an important fact or event;

* the untrue representation is believed by the victim (the person or organization to whom the representation has been made);

* the victim relies upon and acts upon the untrue representation;

* the victim suffers loss of money and/or property as a result of relying upon and acting upon the untrue representation.

It would depend on whether the NFL or the stadium ticket sales people intentionally made an untrue representation about the availability of the seats.
