White collar crime is a term used to describe a variety of non-violent crimes motivated by financial gain. Typically, white collar crimes rely on scamming or defrauding another individual or entity through deceitful means. Today, fraud schemes can be highly sophisticated and potentially cost companies millions or even billions of dollars.
Examples of white collar crime include:
White collar crimes can involve a number of federal and state laws. An individual facing charges should consult with a seasoned criminal defense attorney without delay to possibly reduce their chances of facing maximum penalties if convicted, which can include fines and restitution payments, prison time, and even asset seizure. The government has the power to confiscate anything they believe was obtained in connection with the fraud, which means that some individuals may even face losing their homes.
Don’t let this happen to you. These charges are very serious and warrant experienced representation.
