Fraudulent misrepresentation is where a false representation is made knowingly, or without believing it to be true, or even where the person making the representation is reckless as to whether it is true or not.
Fraudulent misrepresentation is also where the person making the representation intends for the recipient to rely on it, and the recipient does rely on it and suffers loss.
All elements need to be met in order to bring a claim for fraudulent misrepresentation. If the person who made the representation honestly believed it to be true, there is no fraud. It could still be another form of misrepresentation.
