Fraud and White Collar Crime Offences

These types of offences include charges such as embezzlement, fraudulent misappropriation and obtaining benefit, credit or money by deception, fraud or misleading statements. Other common offences include directors cheating or defrauding and corrupt commission or rewards.

There are a range of penalties available for those charged with a fraud or white collar offence. Many people believe that white collar crimes are not treated as seriously as charges such as assault or drug-related offences. However that perception is not reflected in the law, with many of these offences involving severe maximum penalties.
