Commercial and White Collar Offenses

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, “the term white-collar crime is now synonymous with the full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals.  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 motivation behind these crimes is financial – to obtain or avoid losing money, property, or services or to secure a personal or business advantage.”
