The issue of fraud and corruption is not new and exists in parallel with the normal daily life of a citizen of the world. It fails when discovered, but while hidden, it insists on a world of gigantic dimensions, where monetary, political, sports power among others gain a mastery over the legal, ethical or moral aspect.
It is the objective of this investigation to highlight, with due description, some cases of sports fraud, particularly associated with doping and addiction or manipulation of results in games.
The methodology used was the review of recent literature of articles published in scientific journals, and in the particular case of the discussion of cases of addiction or manipulation of results in games, Portuguese periodicals were consulted cumulatively that provided useful information for the discussion of research carried out in Portugal.
From the research conducted, it concluded that fraud and corruption in sports world occur in multiple situations and with multiple actors. The main actors are the athletes, their agents, referees, players among many others linked to associations of the sport class. The use of doping and genetic doping although with serious health complications is used and, even the legislation and supervision of the controlling entities, cannot stop this phenomenon in its fullness. One way of solving it would be to introduce more education in sports, not only pedagogically but also psychologically, especially among young people and adults, in order to shape their minds and to accommodate the real essence of sport: the passion for competition.
