The legal definition of false pretenses includes the elements of false representation of fact or circumstance, calculated to mislead. In order for there to be civil liability, however, there must also be causally related damages. That's the pure legal definition. Without facts, it is hard to apply the law and say whether this fits your scenario.
I truly wish you the best.
