Summary/Abstract: The offence of fraudulence belongs to the category of the offences against property, albeit it can be limited down to only two groups of actions. The first of the groups is related to the beguilement of travel by train or some other means of locomotion, in which case, in order to be held responsible, the perpetrator has to be penalized for the beguilement of travels by train for which they did not acquit the fee at least twice in a year, and perpetrate the same beguilement for the third time. The second group encompasses a one-time beguilement of a different type of locomotion, food, beverage, admission to a party, use of an automated machine, or a different and similar provision. The offence of fraudulence is identified with the crime of fraud, but considered less severe. The following article has been dedicated to the analysis of the regulation found under art. 121 of the Code of Offences of May 20, 1971 which regulates the offence of fraudulence, as well as to the overview of the criminal responsibility for the perpetration of that offence.
