Over the past decade, there has been an increase in the number of âwhite-collarâ type criminal allegations. Common instances of white collar crimes include fraud, theft of data, theft of money, forgery, telemarketing and tax evasion.
Offences referred to as âwhite collar crimesâ do not involve physical violence; they largely relate to financial issues.
Common penalties for this type of offence can include jail time, restitution, fines and criminal forfeiture.
The effects of this type of conviction, though, far exceed the court-imposed penalties. Business, travel, and work-related effects of this type of this type of conviction must also be considered.
