Basically, defraud another by depriving them God wants you to do for them. In other words you are showing a lack of love for them by this robbing them of something God desires you to do for them even if it is only a part of the whole God desires to have done for them..
Sin, by its nature, robs another of something God desires them to have.
So whenever you deliberately show a lack of love to another there is sin and you are defrauding them.
