"Timo" y "Estafa"

¿Qué es la diferencia, o son iguales?

Son parecidos pero no coinciden un 100%, pues el timo incluye hurto mediante engaño, como en el "cuento del tío", mientras que la estafa puede incluir llevarse algo con la falsa promesa de pagarlo luego.

El timo se centra más en el acto del engaño mientras que la estafa se centra más en el perjuicio, por eso es el nombre legal del delito.

Gracias, AleC

Time es una palabra neuva para me:



timo


MASCULINE NOUN
1. (fraud)
a. swindle

Muchos turistas aceptan participar en juegos callejeros que todo el mundo sabe que son un timo.Many tourists willingly participate in street tricks which are known for being a swindle.

b. rip-off (colloquial)

Veinte dólares por dos cervezas es un auténtico timo.Twenty dollars for a couple of beers is a real rip-off.

c. con trick (colloquial)
Todos los juegos de este casino son un timo, pero la gente sigue jugando.All the games in this casino are a con trick, but people keep playing.

d. con (colloquial)
Algunos productos de belleza no son más que un timo, pero es un negocio muy lucrativo.Some beauty products are a bit of a con but it's a very lucrative business.

e. scam (colloquial)
Ese apartamento tan barato frente al mar que vimos en Internet resultó ser un timo.That cheap apartment with a sea view we saw on the Internet was a scam.
