There were ninety four cases relating to fraud recorded in 2020 compared to sixty one cases in 2019 and thirty one cases in 2018.

- more noteworthy and more open electronic records which are the evidences of fraud and accordingly permit counsels to feel capable of pleading fraud in more cases,
- customers getting more willing to air their grimy clothing out in the open,
- a slight standardization of pleading fraud in spite of the fact that counsels actually treat their commitments in a serious manner.
