White-collar crime covers a variety of nonviolent crimes involving cheating of some sort. Such crimes include fraud, bribery, insider trading, environmental crime, embezzlement, forgery, tax evasion, kickbacks, and money laundering. Many different agencies are associated with white-collar crime. Most notably, the FBI, the Securities of Exchange Commission, Internal Revenue Service, United States Treasury, United States Postal Service, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. It has been coined white-collar because of a historical connection referencing such criminals with that of high social status in the course of his or her occupation.

White-collar crimes are technical in nature. They often involve the manipulation of information either on paper or electronically, as oppose to blue-collar crimes, which often involve physical force. If you are under investigation for a white-collar crime, you will receive a well-defined target letter saying so. If you have been contacted by a representative of any of the federal agencies noted above or of an analogous state agency, you are under investigation. If you have received a grand jury subpoena to produce business records, or are presented with a search warrant to seize business documents, or receive a target letter, you are under investigation. When this occurs, contacting a lawyer is crucial.
