White-Collar Financial Crimes.

White collar crimes refer to an expanding group of non-violent, financially motivated offenses that in many instances are conducted via the Internet or with computers. This group derives its title “white-collar” in that these offenses and misconduct are commonly associated with business professionals that dress up in suits and ties – hence, white collars, and these crimes frequently involve large sums of money, additional criminal activity, such as fraud and/or many victims. As such, white collar crimes are frequently prosecuted as state, or multi-jurisdictional or Federal offenses, which greatly intensify criminal penalties.
