What are some examples of white-collar crimes?

White-collar crime is a term regularly used when referring to a number of Federal and state statutes criminalizing what is considered as business and financial crimes (as opposed to violent crimes). Some examples include money laundering, obstruction of justice, tax crimes, false claims, securities fraud, antitrust violations, health care fraud, mail fraud, racketeering and bribery.

Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice has focused on vigorously prosecuting offenses within white-collar crime in connection with fraudulent Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan applications submitted under the CARES Act.  Federal criminal complaints have been filed across the nation charging individuals with criminal offenses such as wire fraud, bank fraud, false statements, and conspiracy to commit wire and bank fraud.
