No, the impersonation to obtain a benefit. Fraud

If telling the merchant I work for VISA and they should review their merchant agreement is criminal, show me the law.
I don't care about the merchant agreement, its claiming to have authority from Visa or newspaper, etc.
In the United States, common law recognizes nine elements constituting fraud:
a representation of an existing fact;
the speaker's knowledge of its falsity;
the speaker's intent that it shall be acted upon by the plaintiff;
the plaintiff's ignorance of its falsity;
the plaintiff's reliance on the truth of the representation;
the plaintiff's right to rely upon it; and
consequent damages suffered by the plaintiff.
