What is White Collar Crime? | Kangs White Collar Crime Defence Solicitors
‘White Collar’ crime is a generic term used to describe crime which:
- generally, is not associated with physical violence
- derives from historical assumption that clerical and administrative workers and business executives wear white collared shirts
- involves financial crime and commercial fraud such as, by way of a small example, embezzlement, ‘insider trading’, boiler room fraud, money laundering, Ponzi Schemes and tax evasion.
Cybercrime is a prime example of the development of the generic term into the modern age.
