I sort of intuitively knows that most lies are legal.
Someone asks me to visit him, I pretended to be busy, even though the truth is I just don't like the guy.
That seems legal.
But some lies are fraud.
Are there clear definition on why certain lies are acceptable and others are illegal?
Some definitions I read is that something is a fraud if the lie is done to get something.
Well, that's not really clear cut. If I said I am busy, for example, I am getting something, namely, I look less like a jerk.
So, what's the difference?
What kind of lies are legal, what kind of lies are illegal, what is fraud, and what is scam, and what's the differences between all those?
