White Collar Crime There's No Alternative

White Collar Crime Attorney Newport Beach

Honestly speaking, “White Collar Crime” refers to a long list of offenses that point to using deceit for financial gains. It means all those crimes normally identified as scams and frauds including embezzlement, money laundering, and tax evasion fall under the category of White Collar Crimes. Additionally, Ponzi schemes, fraud in the securities market and insider trading, and tax evasion and insurance fraud, constitute white-collar crimes.


It’s safe to say all fraudulent dealings are part of the larger White Collar Crimes. Fraud is any activity that entails deceiving an individual or the masses for monetary gains. Scams typically happen in the stocks and securities market.

Securities fraud

Securities fraud comes in a plethora of forms, although it seems the most common one is that which involves “insider trading.” In insider trading, someone privy to valuable business information regarding a company or investment partakes the data for his or her personal gains. It entails buying or selling an enormous amount of stocks to get a lot more in profits while duping buyers or sellers (for that matter).

Another form of White Collar Crime is when an individual in the securities sector seeks investment while knowing well that the figures and facts he or she is using are wrong. By luring investors using “cooked” prospects and financial information, such an individual will be committing securities fraud.

Some executives are fond of making false and misleading statements in their company’s regular public reports. They also fall under the category of securities fraud just because they are portraying a false image to spur sales and investments.

Other forms of White Collar Crime

As mentioned, mortgage fraud and insurance fraud constitute common fraudulent schemes. Insurance scams are rife because most of the insurance industry’s players strive to deceitfully and improperly siphon funds from clients or insurers. Customers present false documents to get their compensations, pretty much like the managers defrauding their clients or their competitors.

Ponzi schemes have been there for some time, and it’s their proponents that reap huge benefits at the expense of unsuspecting investors.


It is the common and improper practice of taking money from someone’s account while you still owe them a particular duty. The most common malpractice is when a company employee steals money from the enterprise. Embezzlement takes many forms and varies in magnitude.

Tax Evasion

Another white-collar crime that involves an individual evading paying taxes, tax evasion is a common practice today. A person may choose not to file his or her tax returns, offer false information or just transfer assets to others to evade responsibility. According to the definition of this crime, the evasion of tax payments takes infinite forms.

Money Laundering

There’s a common practice of filtering illegally obtained money in legitimate transactions so the cash looks clean. The process takes three steps with the final one turning the money into assets. And, yeah, Money laundering is as alive as it is illegal nowadays.

    "Caring and Genuine Attorney"
    I called the office and right off the bat, I was super impressed at how much help I was receiving without even meeting in person. Chris (the guy who answered my call) is extremely nice and he explains everything so well. He told me how he used to work at the courts for many years (that gave me relief that he knew what he was talking about). Randy (the attorney) is delightful as well and put my worries to rest with his expertise and knowledge. You can tell by his demeanor and how passionate he speaks, that he is genuine and he cares about his clients. This office handles everything from DUI cases to just about anything criminal related.

    "They are such a great team to work with."
    I was new in the US and I didn’t know anything or what to do from Day 1 from presenting my case to Randy. He reassured me that he would help me and that I shouldn’t worry. He was very supportive, responsive to every question no matter how silly it was he was very patient and comforting. He knew exactly how to address the problem and had a plan of action and after a long 2 years, he won my case I appreciate every effort Randy & Chris have done. They are such a great team to work with and I would recommend him in a heartbeat

    "In life you need a good mechanic, a good Doctor, and a Super Lawyer."

    There’s no words to describe Mr. Collins, not just as an attorney but a Super and Great Human Being. He has been an “Angel” and “Life Saver” for one of my family members.

    By Profession, I’m a Radio and TV Host, and I’ve interviewed and talked to quite a few in this Profession, and trust me when I say, that I’m so impressed with Mr. Collins and in today’s modern times it’s hard to find someone that works so hard, cares, and makes things happen!!!

    In life you need a good mechanic, a good Doctor, and a Super Lawyer. Trust him, believe in him and you become one of the “Winners” by hitting “Jackpot” with your legal needs:)
