Learn About the Types of White Collar Crimes
Crimes that are committed in a commercial environment for the purpose of financial gain could include the following:
If someone steals or misuses money entrusted to them by another party, then they may be accused of embezzlement. To secure a conviction of embezzlement, the prosecutor must show that the transfer was a fraudulent use of money that was legally owned by another person.
Attempting to disguise the fact that money was earned illegally by trying to show that it came from a legal source. Money laundering charges can often be combined with the charges for the crime that the person was trying to conceal such as drug trafficking.
Intentionally deceiving another person for personal gain or to deprive the victim. Fraud can include a number of different types such as securities fraud, credit card fraud, and healthcare fraud. To prove that fraud was committed, the prosecutor must show that the accused knowingly made a false statement to deceive the victim and that the victim suffered harm as a result of the deception.
If a person gives money or a gift in order to alter the conduct of the recipient, then it is considered bribery. The U.S. government considers this action to be illegal when a person bribes a public official; both the recipient and the donor may be arrested for the crime.
If a person trades the stock or securities of a public company because they have access to non-public information, then they may be accused of insider trading. Insider trading is illegal because it is considered a violation of public trust.
