Hi Dinara, "Framed" describes someone who has been wrongly accused as a result of evidence that is deliberately and falsely planted at the scene of a crime or among that person's possessions. Example: John was suddenly arrested by the police for murder. Though he was not the perpetrator, detectives found his fingerprints on a beer bottle in the victim's flat. He later remembered that he had been drinking in a pub two days ago, so someone could have deviously taken his beer bottle and planted it in the victim's flat after committing the crime. He had essentially been FRAMED. On a separate note, I would suggest that the word "getting" be replaced with "being". You are using a passive voice here. I am afraid of being framed. = I am afraid of being accused by someone who will put the blame on me for something I have not done. I hope this helps.

If you are 'framed' you are accused, and found guilty of, a crime you did not commit because of evidence which is manufactured and untrue.
