Types of White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes generally refer to cases that pertain to a person's desire for unlawful financial gain. These types of offenses can include:

Extortion vs Bribery

Extortion and bribery are easily confused for one another due to their similarities; however, the primary difference focuses on the relationship between the parties involved in giving or receiving money, goods or services. In extortion cases, the receiving party is the initiator, whereas with bribery, either party could be the initiator.
