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.
