Types of White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes can take many forms, including:

Bank Fraud

Bank fraud involves the use of fraudulent means in order to obtain funds or other property owned by a financial institution. This can include using false or stolen documents, forging signatures on checks, or using unauthorized credit cards.


Embezzlement is the theft or misappropriation of funds or assets entrusted to an individual by their employer or organization. This can include stealing cash or securities, manipulating financial records, or using company funds for personal expenses.

Healthcare Fraud

Healthcare fraud involves defrauding the government or private insurers by submitting false or fraudulent claims for medical services or equipment. This can include billing for services not provided, inflating bills, or providing unnecessary services.

Money Laundering

Money laundering is the process of concealing or disguising the proceeds of criminal activity to make them appear legitimate. This can involve a wide range of activities, such as structuring financial transactions to avoid detection, using shell companies to hide the source of funds, or investing illicit funds in legitimate businesses.

Public Corruption

Public corruption involves the misuse of public office for private gain. This can include bribery, extortion, or other illegal activities by public officials or employees.

Securities Fraud

Securities fraud involves making false or misleading statements or omissions in connection with the sale or purchase of securities, such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. This can include insider trading, market manipulation, or Ponzi schemes.

Tax Fraud and Tax Evasion

Tax fraud involves intentionally understating income, overstating deductions, or failing to report income or assets on tax returns. This can involve a wide range of activities, such as using false documentation, hiding assets offshore, or claiming false deductions.

Violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

The FCPA is a federal law that prohibits companies and individuals from bribery or other corrupt behavior related to international business transactions. This can include offering cash payments, gifts, or other inducements to government officials in order to secure contracts or other advantages.

Wire Fraud

Wire fraud is a federal offense that involves the use of electronic communication to commit fraud, such as email, phone calls, text messages, or social media posts. This can include schemes such as identity theft, phishing scams, or online auction fraud.

Federal and State White Collar Crime Investigations

White collar crime investigations can be lengthy and complex, often involving federal prosecutors, multiple agencies, and the review of vast amounts of financial data. In New York, federal white collar crime investigations are typically conducted by agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

State-level investigations are typically conducted by the New York Attorney General’s Office or the district attorney’s office in the county where the alleged crime occurred. These investigations may involve state-specific laws and regulations and can result in state-level charges and penalties.
