A “White Collar Crime” is sort of a catch-all phrase when talking about federal crimes, as historically the federal government did not actively pursue drug and street crimes to the extent it currently does.
When talking about white-collar crimes today it is more specifically meant to apply to financial crimes, which typically involve the use of false or fraudulent pretenses or promises. Lies, omissions of facts and deceit calculated to obtain financial gain are the common aspects of a white-collar crime. Such crimes include bank fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud and even healthcare fraud. Finally, in white collar cases, the federal government almost always charges the crime of “conspiracy” as well.
