Elements Of White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes all retain the aspect of financial gain obtained through misleading a victim, and can include:
- Securities fraud: Misrepresentation of a business’s prospects and future earning potential or holdings to secure investments.
- Insurance fraud: Attempts to submit a false insurance claim to receive funds or when a company defrauds customers.
- Insider trading: An individual with special, inside knowledge of a business’s internal practices buys or sells stocks based on this information.
- False statements: Knowingly withholding information or distributing information which you know to be false and which affects contracts and other agreements.
Protect Your Rights, Secure Your Assets
Recent high-profile fraud cases in the media led to more aggressive investigations and prosecutions for white collar crimes across California. Unfortunately, this caused some law enforcement agencies to become overzealous and accuse financial professionals of a wide range of crimes. Much like other criminal law cases, the stakes are high for white collar crime, as nearly every aspect of your life is in jeopardy including your family, freedom, assets as well as your reputation.
