Cheating restitution

Can someone tell me of circumstances in which cheating may involve obligations of restitution?

What type of cheating? Adultery, cheating on a test etc?

I have the same question as another poster: What kind of cheating?

Side note: Cheating also, always involves lying. And lying is a form of stealing. (That is my personal view.) Have you thought through this “cheating” you refer too in these terms?

To repent of a deed is to reject that deed in which one has repented of.

Your question essentially is if cheating is ok in certain specific circumstances. All I can say, and the church emphatically affirms this, is the ends never justify the means.
