White collar crimes, are often referred to as “professional crimes.”
A white collar crime often involves intentional acts of deception through misrepresentation of facts by one or more individuals for the purpose of financial gain, to obtain benefits which they are otherwise not entitled, to deprive others of their property or assets, or to receive other types of privileges, compensation, or services which the accused would not have received if the true facts were disclosed.
Many white collar crimes may also be committed by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading. In short, omitting relevant facts is just as liable as manufacturing facts which are untrue.
