White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes generally consist of nonviolent transgressions that involve deceit, misrepresentation, and other forms of dishonesty that result in financial loss to victims. They are called “white collar” because they are often committed by business professionals or government officials. A large majority of these crimes consist of various types of fraud.
