White Collar Crime

White Collar Criminal Defense in Cleveland

It is Possible to be Involved in a White Collar Scheme Without Being Aware of It

Most of the time, when someone says “white collar crime,” they are referring to actions that are used to acquire money illegally. This means that there are many laws which, if broken, are considered white collar crime because almost every business activity involves money. Because there are so many laws regarding financial activities, white collar crimes can be extremely complex.


Unfortunately, because most white collar crimes involve more than one individual, it is also possible to be involved in a white collar scheme without being aware of it. Just because you were not aware of your involvement, however, does not mean that state and federal agencies will not prosecute you, however. Indeed, because white collar crime has been on the rise due to our poor economy, many agencies are prosecuting financial crimes more vigorously than ever before. Often, they seek maximum penalties.
