3 Types of White Collar Crimes

Last updated 7 years ago

Criminal defense law firms see accusations of white collar crime every day. White collar crime is a term for generally nonviolent crimes with personal gain in mind.

Anyone can be accused of a white collar crime, but it was originally thought that these kinds of offenses were solely perpetrated by public officials and businessmen. Criminal attorneys are the best way to defend against accusations of white collar crimes.

1.      Fraud: Fraud is the intentional deception of a person or business, typically for monetary gain. Fraud is difficult to prove in a court of law, due to the requirement that the defendant must be convicted of the deliberate misrepresentation of facts. Criminal attorneys will help the defendant present their case in the event that they are accused of fraud. There are many types of fraud, from insurance to mortgage fraud, and criminal defense firms can represent you whatever accusation you’re facing.

2.      Tax Evasion: Failure to pay taxes on time, being delinquent for subsequent years, or misrepresenting yourself on your return is tax evasion. It is also considered evasion if you file inaccurate taxes for either a larger refund or a lesser payment. If you are accused of tax evasion, then your defense options will be explained to you in detail by a criminal defense law firm. Criminal attorneys assist you if you find yourself under investigation for tax evasion and can explain your defense options in detail.

3.      Money Laundering: Any time funds are accepted, deposited, or used in purchasing goods or services when the funds have come from illegal activities is money laundering. Unknowingly accepting these funds can connect you to a case, and you’ll want to consult a criminal defense firm immediately.
