Fraud and Financially-Motivated Offenses
Non-violent acts involving deception, typically known as white collar crimes,
are commonly committed by a public official or person of business. Signs
of a white collar crime normally involve a trail of evidence known as

Theft, Regulatory Offenses, and Public Administration Crimes
White collar crimes can be further broken down into three typologies: theft
crimes, crimes against public administration, and regulatory offenses.
White collar crime is considered a form of theft when it involves things
like embezzlement, which is stealing a business' money for one's
own purposes. White collar crime can be a regulatory offense, say, when
a broker violations a securities law that results in investors losing
money, such as unfair trade practices. White collar crime can also be
a crime against public administration when they fall under the umbrella
of perjury or offering bribes.
