What is a white collar crime?
White collar crimes refer to the crimes committed by business people or professionals, entrepreneurs, and public officials. These are crimes often based on allegations of deliberate deception or misrepresentation that take place in a business or financial setting aimed at personal gain. They may violate state or federal laws and so may be prosecuted in state or federal courts. Examples of white collar crimes are various kinds of fraud, including mail fraud, insurance fraud, health care fraud, government fraud, credit card fraud, bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud, securities fraud, computer fraud, mortgage fraud, embezzlement, bribery, extortion, money laundering, racketeering, environmental law violations, identity theft, Ponzi schemes and other investment frauds, and more.
Penalties vary, depending on the nature of the crime, the number of victims defrauded, and the amount of money or assets taken, as well as the previous criminal history of the defendant. Penalties may include imprisonment, large fines, restitution to victims, and probation.
