Abstract

Because of their nature, bills of lading present numerous opportunities for fraudsters to manipulate the commodity trades. These opportunities arise because of the unique range of functions that such bills perform. What follows is a brief exposition of the three main legal functions of a bill of lading, as well as three areas of commerce where bill of lading frauds frequently occur.
