Fraud is, as it were, a natural 'gift': a kind of basic human instinct for survival. People who consciously buy a false Rolex or a false Vuitton, for example, actually commit deception as well.

And there are even those who have come to believe that this Rolex or Vuitton is real and therefore deceive themselves.
