White collar crime (or corporate crime, more accurately) refers to financially motivated, nonviolent crime committed by businesses and government professionals. Typically, “white collar” charges generally refer to non-violent crimes involving damages of high dollar amounts, usually the theft of large amounts of money through some means of fraud.
The most frequent types of White Collar charges:
- Fraud exceeding $5,000
- Income tax evasion
- Corporate theft/fraud
- Securities fraud
- Identity theft
- Money laundering
In some instances, these crimes are seen by the public as being “victimless” since they didn’t involve direct theft from another, such as in instances of money laundering, forgery or income tax evasion.
In other instances, such as corporate theft/fraud and particularly identity theft, these are crimes that leave extensive, lasting financial harms to others in their wake.
These are allegations and charges too complex to meet without experienced counsel such as Mandeep Saggi of Saggi Law Firm. Take these charges seriously; in a time of global economic upheaval, many in society view white-collar criminals as harshly as they would those convicted of violent offenses.
