Fraud is a general term used to describe an act of deceit by an individual or group. This act of deceit can come in many different forms. For example, insurance fraud investigators try to expose those who make false claims in order to get insurance money. Intellectual property fraud occurs when fake products are passed off or sold as originals. Mortgage fraud occurs when somebody has falsified the paperwork to ensure the loan goes through. Since each of the above are examples of fraud, then investigating them would fall under the classification of Fraud Investigations.
