Types of White-Collar Crime in Nashville

Many different offenses may be considered "white-collar crimes." In most instances, these crimes are tried by the prosecution's presentation of a "paper trail" of transactions or other administrative actions by the accused.

Some of the most common white-collar charges include:

  • Embezzlement: When a person misappropriates funds they were entrusted with by another person or company.

  • Money laundering: When funds obtained illegally are “cleaned” by making it look like they were earned through a legitimate business.

  • Insurance fraud: As a white-collar crime, insurance fraud is when a manager, executive, or other person in a position of power misrepresents aspects of an insurance policy for financial gain.

  • Insider trading: When a person trades stock based on confidential information they have privileged access to. It’s illegal because they are using insider information (which isn’t open to the public) for their own financial gain.

  • Investment fraud: When a person or company scams a person into investing money into something that only truly benefits the fraudster. Ponzi schemes/pyramid schemes, real estate investment fraud, cryptocurrency-related investment fraud, and internet investment fraud are the most common.

  • Mail fraud: When someone attempts to scheme another person out of money and uses mail to do so, such as by mailing them fake invoices or stealing their mail to get their personal checks, social security number, credit/debt cards, etc.

  • Wire fraud: Similar to mail fraud, this is when someone tries to scheme someone else out of money using the internet, by phone, by email, or by other forms of electronic communication. Phishing is one of the most common wire fraud schemes.
