Dishonesty is an act without honesty; to cheat, lie or be deliberately deceptive; lacking in integrity; to be corrupt or treacherous.

Dishonesty is the fundamental component of a majority of offenses relating to the acquisition, conversion and disposal of property (tangible or intangible) defined in criminal law such as fraud.

Some causes of dishonesty include.

Peer pressure.
Performance anxiety.
Excuse making.
Inability to manage the demands of student life.
Situations that encourage academic dishonesty.
Self-justification habits.
Unfamiliarity with what constitutes academic dishonesty.
Lack of understanding about consequences.

The consequences of lying are not as simple as they might seem.

People often think that lies breed contempt and guilt, but they do much more.

They foster relationships, build trust, destroy social networks, create social networks, make people more creative, and influence how often other people lie.
