What Is a White Collar Crime?
Usually, a white collar crime is a non-violent offense that is committed for financial gain or some type of personal benefit. Offenses under this umbrella term are typically carried out by someone working in a business setting, which is where the term "white collar" comes from.
Types of White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes include, but are not limited to the following:
- Bribery: Giving or receiving something of value to influence the decisions of a public official.
- Credit card fraud: Using a stolen credit card (or credit card information) to purchase goods and/or services.
- Embezzlement: Taking business property or assets that one was entrusted with for their own personal gain.
- Bank fraud: Using deception to receive money or assets from a financial institution.
- Money laundering: Using various transactions to hide the source of illegally obtained money.
- Tax evasion: Intentionally failing to submit the full amount of taxes owed to the government.
- Insurance fraud: Falsifying claims to obtain insurance benefits.
Who Investigates White Collar Crimes?
Although these crimes do not result in injury to another person, white collar are not considered harmless, and the matters are harshly prosecuted. They could fall under both state and federal jurisdiction. When the federal government handles these cases, big-name agencies, such as the FBI, investigate them. Agents have numerous resources to assist in their investigation and their reviews are thorough. Regardless of whether your case is a state or federal matter, you need skilled legal help throughout the entire process.
Our Kitsap County lawyers have the drive and tenacity to go up against even the most formidable opponents, and we will level the playing field in your case.
