White collar crimes: Tennessee woman indicted for fraud

Facing accusations for any alleged criminal activity can have many people feel anxious. White collar crimes may feel particularly difficult to handle as federal charges can come with hefty consequences if a conviction takes place. When individuals have been charged with this type of allegation, they will certainly want to determine their best courses of legal action.

3 most common white-collar crimes

Perpetrators of so-called “white-collar crimes” often believe that their position in a corporate environment affords them undue privileges. Many people accused of such actions would never consider themselves criminals, in fact, but the law typically sees things differently. Considering its most common forms makes it easier to understand how somebody might fall into a pattern of white-collar criminal behavior.

What to do if federal officers come knocking

Federal officers can be aggressive when investigating suspected cases of white-collar crime such as fraud. They may appear unannounced at the doors of your business, asking if they can interview you or search your office records. They may even assure you that you are not the target of the investigation.
