The most white collar crimes I have come across have been credit card fraud and insurance fraud. These crimes are white collar crimes because they are committed by a person usually through their occupation and they are nonviolent. When you think about it the person on the other end of the phone when you call a credit card company can be a criminal but more times than not by the time the companies realize it they are long gone. I have realized that all the verification that is done on the phone with a rep is just for show.
Insurance Fraud just as much as credit card fraud, and it’s a very costly crime for the general public as well as the country. Also in this case insurance fraud is also committed by a person in the course of their occupation a lot of times because the insurance agent can walk the insured through the process. Even though one can think there should be an ethical standard many people to obey that rule.
