What Is White Collar Crime?

White collar crime encompasses a range of nonviolent offenses committed through deceptive practices, primarily for financial gain. These crimes are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and are not dependent on the application or threat of physical force or violence. The complexity of these crimes often requires a sophisticated understanding of both the legal system and the business practices involved.

These offenses can undermine the hard work and integrity of professionals and businesses. As such, they carry significant penalties, including hefty fines, prison sentences, and long-lasting damage to reputations.
