The term "white collar crime" typically refers to a financial crime that is committed by a business professional or government official. It often involves some form of fraud (deception), where the financial reward is money. Although white collar crime is usually nonviolent, it is not victimless. Sometimes, a fine line can exist between white collar conduct that is criminal in nature rather than civil. The distinction is important, and can mean the difference between fines, penalties, and prison, which are criminal punishments, and an award of the civil remedy of monetary damages.
