White-collar crimes

A white-collar crime is a non-violent act involving deception, typically committed by a businessperson or public official.

Evidence in a white-collar crime usually involves a paper trail of evidence that investigators use to prosecute.

Some examples of white-collar crimes include:

  • Embezzlement—the taking of someone’s property by a person with whom it is entrusted.
  • Bribery—when someone gives or takes a bribe.
  • Larceny—involves taking someone’s property without paying for it or returning it.
  • Extortion—also known as blackmail.
  • Fraud—this often includes health care fraud, tax fraud, insurance fraud, and mortgage fraud.
  • Price fixing—an agreement between two parties to set prices for a certain product.
  • Racketeering—the extortion of money to further the interests of a criminal organization.
  • Computer fraud—using a computer to commit a crime.
  • Securities and Commodities law violations
