Types of White Collar Crimes

There are many different types of white collar crimes, and each is prosecuted under a federal or state statute. Our lawyers understand the laws and penalties associated with each of these crimes and can help you build a strong defense.

Some examples of white collar crimes include:

  • Fraud: This involves deceitful practices for financial gain. Examples include securities fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, and corporate fraud.
  • Embezzlement: This is the act of wrongfully taking another person’s or entity’s money or property that has been entrusted to you. Embezzlement is a felony and is typically charged when a person in a position of financial responsibility, such as a bookkeeper, accountant, or other employee, fraudulently transfers funds or property to their own account.
  • Identity Theft: This crime involves using another person’s private information, such as their name, social security number, or credit card information, without their permission. Identity theft is a felony and can be charged in state court, federal court, or both. The penalties for identity theft vary depending on the circumstances of the case.
  • Money Laundering: This is the act of making illegally gained proceeds appear legal. Money laundering is a serious crime that often involves complex transactions. It is a federal offense and can be charged in addition to other crimes, such as drug trafficking or fraud.
  • Tax Evasion: This crime involves the illegal evasion of taxes by individuals, corporations, trusts, and other entities. Tax evasion is a serious crime and can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The penalties for tax evasion can include imprisonment, fines, and restitution.
  • Bribery and Corruption: This involves offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting something of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in a position of power, often for personal gain.
  • Forgery: This involves creating or altering a document with the intent to defraud. This could include forging signatures on checks or documents, creating fake IDs, or falsifying financial records.
  • Cybercrime: This encompasses a range of criminal activities carried out using computers and the internet. It includes things like hacking, phishing, and various forms of online fraud.
