What is a White Collar Crime?
White collar crimes are financially motivated offenses. They are perpetrated to unlawfully obtain money, property, and in some cases, political or business advantages. These offenses typically result in economic loss, not physical injury. However, these facts do not mean they are taken any less serious by the authorities. White collar crimes, like fraud and embezzlement, are harshly punished in North Carolina.
Have Investigators Approached You?
If a local, state, or federal investigator has approached you about a financial crime, you should not answer any questions. Ask for the officer or agent’s card, but politely decline to answer any questions over the phone, in person, or at a police station or office. The only thing you should say is that you are happy to cooperate, but you need to speak to your attorney.
