Rather than break into a person’s home and steal from them a white collar criminal will sit at home and hack their bank account. A few epic examples of white collar crime include Bernie Madoff’s famous Ponzi scheme, the shady accounting schemes at Enron, and the Abramoff wire fraud, tax evasion and bribery.
