WHITE COLLAR CRIME

White collar crimes typically involve allegations of fraud or theft by a person of high social standing committed during their employment and motivated by greed. These include money laundering, theft, bribery, embezzlement, forgery, fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, health care fraud, computer crimes, and RICO related crimes. If you have been charged with a white collar crime, you should hire an attorney to help. 

Most likely, local or federal law enforcement or detectives with the Department of Financial Services or Division of Investigative and Forensic Services will conduct an investigation prior to charging the listed crimes. Before speaking to law enforcement, hire an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help you navigate the investigation phase, which in many cases is the most important phase of the case.

These crimes include:

  1. Fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud

  2. Scheme to defraud

  3. Employee theft or embezzlement

  4. Credit card fraud

  5. Securities fraud

  6. Bank fraud

  7. Insurance fraud

  8. Exploitation of an elderly person or disabled adult

  9. Notary public misconduct

  10. Mortgage fraud

  11. Health care fraud

  12. Florida's Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) and conspiracy to commit RICO
