What is a White Collar Crime?
A white-collar crime is defined as a non-violent crime typically committed by a person in a position of authority, trust, or responsibility within a business or government setting. The act of this crime generally involves the manipulation, deception, or other illegal means of gaining financial or economic gain. Individuals, businesses, and society as a whole may suffer substantial financial harm from these crimes.
It is often difficult to detect and prosecute white-collar crimes due to their complex schemes or techniques to conceal illegal activities. Several parties may be involved, including those within the organization and external collaborators, such as accountants. Penalties for a conviction can include fines, restitution, and imprisonment due to the nature of these crimes.
Types Of White Collar Crimes
Some of the typical charges that fall under the scope of white collar crimes are:
- Money Laundering
- Fraud (Corporate, Loan, Mortgage, Bank, Health Care)
- Antitrust Violations
