Not everyone accused of a white-collar crime is a criminal. Unfortunately, even honest professionals can be wrongfully accused of committing an offense, often because of circumstances beyond their control. Generally, white-collar crimes such as embezzlement, identity theft, pyramid schemes, money laundering, forgery and insider trading stem from illegal activities involving money. Just a single error on a financial document can lead to an allegation of fraud.
