Types Of White Collar Crime
There are various types of white collar crimes, and they are all financially motivated to some degree. From mishandling funds to stealing sensitive information, there are both state laws and federal statutes against this type of criminal activity. Types of white collar crime include:
- Fraud — This includes actions that employ various types of deception in order to gain access to money or for financial gain.
- Embezzlement — This type of crime happens when a person trusted with another person’s money intentionally mishandles it or takes it for personal use.
- Computer crimes — Many types of white collar crimes take place online, such as through email scams or hacking into sites to gain access to money or information.
White collar cases lack a violent element, but this does not mean you should not take your case seriously. White collar crimes may be felony charges, which means the penalties you are facing are especially severe.
