White Collar Crime Defined

White collar crimes generally involve using deceit to obtain money or valuables illegally. Common examples of white collar charges include:

  • Embezzlement
  • Tax evasion
  • Money laundering
  • Fraud, including securities fraud and insurance fraud

Often, people charged with a white collar crime are financial advisers, loan officers, accountants, executives and other professionals who have been entrusted with money belonging to clients or employers. Because the alleged thefts generally involve tens of thousands of dollars or more, a conviction will require the defendant to pay huge amounts in restitution and court-imposed fines.
