Postby David A. Szwak » Fri Oct 07, 2005 8:07 pm

One who willfully deceives another, with intent to induce him to alter his position to his injury or risk, is liable for any damage which he thereby suffers. 76 O.S., sec. 2.

A deceit within the meaning of the last section is either: [1] The suggestion, as a fact, of that which is not true by one who does not believe it to be true; [2] The assertion, as a fact, of that which is not true, by one who has no reasonable ground for believing it to be true; [3] The suppression of a fact by one who has bound to disclose it, or who gives information or other facts which are likely to mislead for want of communication of that fact; or, [4] A promise, made without any intention of performing. 76 O.S., sec. 3.
