Semantics

I know, I know, I should stop reading the NST, but I can’t because it’s for work. Have a look at this and tell me whether you think it’s right (emphasis mine):

Fraudsters use women to obtain contracts

KUALA LUMPUR: Sexual gratification is one of the three main factors why fraud takes place. Fraudsters use women in exchange for government contracts and licences from authorities and decision-makers, according to the Malaysian chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

The act of using women in exchange for business contracts and licences was a global phenomenon, he added.

Um… isn’t that bribery and NOT fraudster? It gets even more confusing when you look at the profile, which would indicate they’re talking about bribery and not fraud.
