White Collar Crimes and Corporate America
The term white collar crime refers to illegal actions undertaken for financial gain. There is typically no violence involved, and in most cases, both the perpetrator and the victims are large corporations. A person or group of people who commit white collar crime use their position to financially exploit others. Some of the most common white collar crimes include the following:
- Tax fraud
- Money laundering
- Mail fraud
- Insider trading
Every year, white collar crimes cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Understandably, the public is upset when a white collar crime is uncovered and wants justice. Since white collar crime often involves large numbers of people within an organization, it is entirely possible to be involved in criminal action without your knowledge. For example, if you work in accounts receivable for an organization, it probably wouldn’t occur to you that the invoices you had been given to create billing statements were bogus. If you are in a situation like this, no one seems to care that you are innocent. You need to connect with an experienced white collar crimes attorney immediately.
