When an individual sets out to commission a crime for personal gain with a deceptive intent, they are committing fraud. Whether the crime is to damage another individual or not, it is always financially motivated. Fraud is categorized under the white collar crime umbrella term and it is usually committed by business and government professionals. The FBI defines these types of crimes as simply, “Lying, cheating, and stealing.” A single fraud scheme can do irrefutable damage and could destroy an entire company.
