A Fall Guy is someone who is assigned blame for the crimes or misdeeds of one or more conspirators or members of an Intelligence Agency. Sometimes, the Fall Guy is framed by conspirators or their Agents. Other times, a Front Man agrees to become the Fall Guy in exchange for a reward from the conspirators after having taken the fall for them. The foundation of organized crime consists of maintaining a system of well-publicized front men who become Fall Guys when necessary.
