What Is A White Collar Crime?
The term “white collar crime” may apply to a wide variety of offenses. They often involve some element of fraud or deception for monetary gain. The people accused of these crimes usually work for a company involved, or target companies, hence the term “white collar.” In some cases, however, the term has been stretched to cover other offenses, like identity theft or tax fraud, that have nothing to do with a company or its employees.
