White collar crimes are non-violent offenses that are typically characterized by deceit, abuse of trust, or concealment. In most cases, white collar crimes are committed in pursuit of personal or corporate interests. Many white collar crimes occur during work hours while the offender is performing his or her regular occupation.

If you are accused of a white collar crime, your freedom and your reputation may be on the line. Conviction could result in exorbitant fines, lengthy time in jail, and damage to your personal and professional relationships.

Examples of White Collar Crimes

White collar crime is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of offenses in the same category. Almost all white collar crimes are serious and are committed for financial gain.

Some of the white collar crimes you could be charged with include:

  • Embezzlement: Individuals who are trusted to handle another person's finances or have access to a business's finances must be trustworthy. When a person managing finances transfers some of the money into his or her accounts or otherwise takes the company's money or resources for personal use, such acts can be considered embezzlement. Many high-profile embezzlement cases involve executives or investment bankers, but this crime can occur on any scale.
  • Racketeering: This act involves participating in the furtherance of an illegal business or scheme. For example, if you are perpetuating a business that involves loan sharking, bribing customers, perjury, or is a part of a money laundering case, then you can be charged with racketeering. Racketeering is a violation of the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organization Act.
  • Identity theft: If you steal another person's Social Security number or financial information and then use this data to fraudulently access resources or open lines of credit, then you can be severely penalized.
  • Fraud: Fraud is the crime of committing deceptive practices, typically in paperwork, and is often committed as an offense against the government or a business. Various forms of fraud occur, including forgery, wire fraud, tax fraud, bankruptcy fraud, mortgage fraud, and more.
