During the conversation, a friend of G. B. said that if G. would give him 300,000 drams, B. would bring the phone from abroad for G. at a bargain price. Believing B., G. transferred 300,000 drams to B., but later G. did not receive either a phone or money. Is B.’s act a crime?
B. will be prosecuted for fraud, because by deceiving G. or abusing his trust, he will take property from him, including money (or convince a person to transfer this property to him).
In order to qualify the act as a crime, the value of the property should be more than 30,000 drams.
