What is a White Collar Crime?
White collar crimes as given that term because the people who commit and prosecute the crimes have "white collars." This includes executives, directors, managers, etc. And those law enforcement officials who pursue white collar crimes include the FBI, Secret Service, IRS, SEC and district attorneys. The penalties for such criminal activity have gone up over the years as the media has given closer attention to such high profile cases as Bernie Madoff, Allen Sanford and others. Even Martha Stewart spent time in prison for taking part in an insider trading crime. For someone who is reportedly worth hundreds of millions to go to jail, it means that anyone investigated for such a crime must take it seriously.
Types of White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes include: money laundering, conspiracy, pyramid schemes, Ponzi schemes, counterfeiting, embezzlement, fraud, tax evasion, RICO, extortion, computer crimes, Internet crimes, forgery, bribery and bankruptcy fraud. Each of these crimes can be prosecuted on the state or federal level and can bring years in prison, heavy fines, intense media scrutiny and more. Many people can even watch as their careers are ruined by such investigations. The penalties for these crimes include prison time, fines, restitution, community service, probation and parole. For an executive who depends upon his or her reputation in order to succeed in their chosen profession, any bad press, arrest or conviction could be the end of even the most celebrated career.
