Many acts committed by or against individuals, companies and organizations fall under the umbrella of “financial crimes.” The term refers to any form of deceiving, concealing or violating the trust of others which results in financial harm to them. These are also commonly called “white collar crimes.”
Many different forms of fraud – from writing counterfeit checks to tax evasion – can be considered financial crimes. Insider trading, embezzlement and racketeering are other examples.
If you, your company or your organization is found guilty of a financial crime, the consequences can be devastating. The penalties could include imprisonment, probation, fines and restitution. Your professional and personal reputation may also be permanently tarnished.
