What is White Collar Crime?

White collar crime can violate state and federal laws and can result in numerous fines, as well as jail time. While there is no specific type of white collar crime, overall, the effects are devastating, often wiping out unsuspecting victims’ bank accounts or credit. For example, credit card fraud, or the unauthorized use of a credit card to obtain goods of value, is a prevalent issue that can quickly affect someone before the offender is caught. Typically, most victims feel like they have a secure identity and rarely consider that they could become a victim of a white collar crime. It can happen anytime, anywhere.
