Fraud cases often come up in a business context because not only did somebody fail to fulfill their end of the bargain (that is, to break the contract) they also did it in a underhanded way.in order to prove fraud you have to prove that not only did the offending party not do what they said they would do but that they made a false representation knowing that they were never going to fulfill it.
While not falling under the fraud heading, there are other causes of action that can arise in a business setting where a person does not fulfill the obligations that they said they would.

Or, a business might be harmed by false representations made by another party (also known as false light representations). These cases arise out of a number of settings, but usually are the fallout of the business deal gone wrong.
