Bank fraud, mortgage fraud, computer crimes, counterfeiting, insider trading,
RICO, credit card fraud and extortion are but a few of the white collar
crimes that one can be accused of. A white collar crime is a non-violent
crime that usually takes place in a business or professional environment
for the purpose of gaining unlawful profit. The majority of white collar
crimes are considered federal crimes, and are consequently tried in federal courts.

important decisions. When you learn that you are under investigation for
a white collar crime, you must take action immediately to protect your

To counterfeit is to illegally imitate something that is protected by
a patent. This can involve counterfeiting currency or counterfeiting consumer products.
Credit Card Fraud
This crime is wide in range, but deals primarily with theft of credit
card information for the purpose of fraudulently obtaining funds.
This crime involves withholding funds that actually belong to someone
else. Typically, these funds are entrusted to a business or individual
for a time, such as to a financial advisor, but not returned.
This crime is committed when an individual steals someone else's information
(credit card information, social security number, etc.) for the purpose
of gaining access to their funds.
Those alleged of mortgage fraud are accused of falsifying information
on their mortgage loan (home loan) application.
This stands for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
It was enacted in 1970 to combat organized crime rings, specifically the
crime of racketeering.
Anyone who provides false information on their tax return statement commits
tax fraud. These types of cases are investigated by the IRS.
