Fraud Attorneys Fort Lauderdale Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer
There really is no criminal charge that specifies “white collar crime.” A white collar crime is typically thought of as any criminal act committed by business executives, professionals and elected officials for financial gain, without physical injury or harm to another person or property. Internet fraud, bank embezzlement and identity theft are examples of white collar crimes in which there may not be any actual physical contact with the victim. The government must prove, through the use of forensic accounting, bank records, tax returns and other financial and accounting evidence, that a crime has been committed for financial gain.
