This study also examines the effect of intention to commit fraud on fraud behavior by religiosity as the moderating variable. This research was conducted at the Village Government of Malang Regency. The sampling method uses the probability sampling method. The data in this study was obtained by distributing 191 questionnaires to respondents who served as village heads or village secretaries in the Village Government of Malang Regency. The analysis technique uses Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) through the smartPLS program. The results show that opportunity and rationalization has a positive effect on the intention to commit fraud. Meanwhile, pressure does not affect the intention to commit fraud.
