Sorry, I forgot to do this yesterday

Stellionate - A legal term meaning fraud committed in making contracts, especially involving selling the same thing (or rights to the same thing) to different people, often which isn't even owned by the person who is selling this to begin with. An example is selling shares in a company you don't own or plots of land.

But it works really, really well if you want to finance a Broadway musical or at least that's what Ballystock and Bloom thought in The Producers
