This chapter examines the protection provided by tort law against false representations. It explains that false representation is the unifying term which refers to torts designed to protect the financial interests of the claimant against the improper actions of others. It discusses the principle of three different types of false representation, these being deceit, passing off, and malicious falsehood.
