Federal White Collar Crimes

White Collar Criminal Offenses
Local and national regulatory agencies increasingly monitor financial transactions conducted by businesses and individuals alike. Even unintentional discrepancies or recordkeeping oversights can lead to a government investigation and white collar criminal charges. Many different types of offenses fall under the umbrella of white collar crime, including but not limited to:
- Identity theft
- Check fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Internet fraud, or phishing
- Investor fraud
- Securities fraud and insider trading
- Stock broker violations, churning, and mutual fund fraud
- Business capital schemes and fraudulent shareholder offerings
- Ponzi schemes
- Mortgage and bank loan fraud
- Health care fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Social security fraud
- Welfare fraud
- Tax evasion
If you have been charged with any type of white collar crime, it is imperative to talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Conviction can result in serious consequences, and with many financial crimes, the prosecutor may also seek enhanced penalties, which can in turn prevent you from procuring employment in the future.
Even if you have not been officially charged, it is never too early to hire an attorney to protect your rights and interests. Chances are you are already under investigation for some offense, and in need of legal assistance, if you have been asked to answer any questions about a financial transaction, investment, or business shareholder agreement.
