What Are White Collar Crimes?
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, white collar crimes are classified
as illegal acts that involve deceit, concealment, or a violation of trust
that can be committed by individuals or organizations for financial gain,
services, avoidance of payment, loss of money, or to obtain personal or
business advantages. Examples of white collar crimes include:
- Forgery: This encompasses a wide range of crimes, such as reproducing someone else’s
signature, altering a check or a document (deed, mortgage, will) and passing
it off as original or authentic.
- Money Laundering: This is the process of concealing the source of illegally obtained money,
ultimately having it reenter circulation with clean money.
- Telemarketing Fraud: This involves the use of telephone lines, cell phones, internet, chat
rooms, emails, and other forms of communication to defraud an individual.
The breadth of these crimes are wide and can be potentially minor or involve
far-reaching schemes and large corporations.
