Most residents in Pennsylvania have heard references to white collar crime but may not always understand what types of acts fall under this label. The term refers to a range of things involving lying, stealing and cheating. White collar crimes involve professional people operating in their professional arena. Alleged lawyer malpractice or any other form of professional malpractice can be an example. Anything that can be classified as fraud, essentially, can be considered a form of white collar crime.
