White collar crime encompasses most illegal offenses that occur in a business or professional setting. White collar crime differs from many other types of crimes in that they do not often involve manifestations of physical violence. Commonly, white collar crime is committed by individuals who larger society entrusts with their confidence and finances. This can include abuses of trust such as embezzlement or fraud committed against an employer. In addition, white collar crime includes personal crimes such as tax evasion or credit card fraud. Despite the different types of white collar crime, most white collar crime results in large-scale financial losses to companies and individuals alike.
