The tort of deceit ordinarily contemplates that the misrepresentation will have been made by the claimant to the defendant. It is, however, possible that the representation is made through third parties. The representation may have been made by a third party to the claimant in such circumstances as to render the defendant liable for deceit. The representation may have been made by the defendant to a third party and thereby induced the claimant to act to his or her detriment in circumstances where the defendant is liable to the claimant. It may be, as is often the case in commercial transactions, that third parties, that is, persons other than the claimant or the defendant, have made and received the representation.
