If a woman presented a child to a man as his, knowing full well that it is the child of another man couldn't that be considered fraud when money is collected to support that child?

It ought to be and should be criminally prosecuted.

Additionally, the actual father should have to pay restitution and penalties to the defrauded man.

NO, for whatever reason, the mother of the child(ren) made the conscious, intentional decision to pursue a man that she knew was not the father. SHE & SHE ALONE should have to pay every last penny that she defrauded from the man she chose to victimize &/or go to jail for victimizing the man & the child. This Marxist, fascist system has got to be dismantled at all cost. They knowingly destroy families, the lives of men & children & all for the sake of supporting whatever lifestyle the "mother" chooses to engage in.

You just don't get it do you! The woman, who could never be called a "mother" in this particular case, intentionally & actively perpetrated a fraud, which is a criminal act, by naming someone in writing in a sworn statement, who wasn't the father of the child(ren). In our legal system, the perpetrator of the crime pays the restitution! I know you just don't have a clue & may never see it, but she (and probably you as well) was very, very wrong!

Why are you excusing the mother?

The feminists have ratcheted up the laws against men to such an outrageous level that paternity fraud is not just ignored, but routinely rubber stamped by the courts. Whether one agrees with the concept of child support or not, virtually everyone can agree that jailing men for child support over children who are not theirs is morally wrong. Men are routinely sent to jail for falling behind on paying child support, even though debtors' prisons in the U.S. were mostly eliminated in the mid-nineteenth century.

The family courts and laws are set up in such a way that makes it very...
