What are Ponzi schemes?

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.

Philadelphia family accused of insurance fraud after estate fires

With today’s sophisticated and increasingly easy-to-use technology so prevalent, it is not uncommon to see headlines about white collar crimes such as identity theft or Ponzi schemes. However, many people can find themselves accused of a white collar crime simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is also possible for an employer to convince an employee to unwittingly participate in shady dealings, especially if the person accused is kept in the dark about what’s really going on. Unfortunately, this may lead to innocent people in Philadelphia being charged with a serious crime.

Understanding white collar crime

White collar crime is often a complex matter, and if you are facing charges, you will need strong legal representation to avoid serious consequences. At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford, P.C., we have protected the rights of numerous Pennsylvania clients accused of a broad spectrum of white collar crimes. We understand that a conviction can come with repercussions that seem unduly harsh.

Identity theft is a crime which authorities in Pennsylvania take very seriously. However, penalties vary depending on the value of the stolen property. For example, according to the Pennsylvania General Assembly, if the total value of stolen property is $2,000 or more, it is considered a third-degree felony punishable by up to $15,000 in fines and seven years in prison on the state level. Identity theft crimes will also be considered a felony in the third degree, regardless of the value of the property, if the actions were part of a criminal conspiracy.

When employees in Pennsylvania and other states are given access to a significant amount of money, it can be tempting for them to steal some of it for themselves, hoping that no one will notice. However, most companies and organizations routinely audit their financial information for signs of fraud and other forms of white collar crime, and people who steal funds from their employer are often caught.
