What Is a White Collar Crime?

Generally, white collar crimes are associated with non-violent offenses perpetrated by white collar workers, particularly those who work in finance. These types of crimes can involve an individual’s personal finances, a business, or even federal agencies.

Below are some common examples of white collar crimes:

  • Embezzlement: When an employee uses company money or property for his or her own benefit, it is known as embezzlement.
  • Computer fraud: Cybercrimes are a serious offense and are frequently prosecuted at a federal level.
  • Bank fraud: If a person takes action to defraud a bank of funds, such as using a stolen identity to access or create an account or trying to pass stolen checks, this is considered bank fraud.
  • Credit card fraud: When the unauthorized use of a credit card is used to obtain goods or property, it is considered credit card fraud. For example, trying to use someone else’s personal information to establish a credit line without their consent.
  • Investment or Ponzi schemes: These crimes occur when an individual is promised a return on his or her investment and, instead, the perpetrator keeps the investment money.
  • Blackmail: Typically, blackmail involves a threat of revealing a damaging secret about an individual. If perpetrated by a person in a position of power or authority within a company to obtain money or other valuable items from a person, it is considered a white collar crime.

Other common white collar crimes include tax evasion, money laundering, and securities fraud.

What Are the Penalties?

Although white collar crimes usually do not involve violence or physical harm, they often result in serious financial damage to individuals, families, and businesses.

Depending on the severity of the crime, penalties might include:

  • Fines
  • Forfeiture of assets
  • Restitution
  • Prison sentence
  • House arrest
  • Probation
