What is a White Collar Crime?

White-collar crime is generally non-violent in nature and often committed by individuals or organizations in the course of their business or professional activities. The term "white collar" refers to the fact that these crimes are usually committed by people in positions of power and trust, such as business executives, government officials, and other professionals.

Examples of white collar crime include public corruption, health care fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, and money laundering, to name a few. Essentially, these offenses are typically financially motivated and may involve complex schemes and deception in order to conceal illegal activity.

While white collar crimes do not involve physical violence, they can have serious consequences for individuals and society as a whole. These scams can destroy a company, devastate families by wiping out their life savings, or cost investors billions of dollars (or even all three).

Common White Collar Crimes

  • Identity theft - to knowingly use a person's identity for personal benefit
  • Embezzlement - an employee stealing funds from their employer
  • Internet crimes - to use the internet to commit a crime, usually fraud, hacking or theft
  • Ponzi schemes - fraud involving the persuasion of investment into an account which isn't yielding true profit

Is Embezzlement a White Collar Crime?

Embezzlement is considered a white collar crime. What does it mean? Embezzlement is when a person or entity intentionally misuses funds that were entrusted to them to safeguard. Instead of keeping the funds safe, the person or entity uses them for personal gain. An example is if they are moving funds to a personal account.
