Forgery can be explained as fraudulent transactions made by writing, drawing or altering documents with the intent to defraud. Items of value that are subject to forgery are documents that convey real property such as land, houses, vehicles, ships and other items of value. Checks and wills are other documents that are frequently altered, forged, manipulated or unauthorized. Forgery is also often used in wrongful termination cases. This crime is also considered identity theft. While every form of forgery is considered a crime, it is usually prosecutable when it involves substantial amounts of money. Other actions taken against offenders could come in the form of a civil suit.
Other white collar crimes include:
- Health Care or Medicaid / Medicare Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Real Estate or Mortgage fraud
- Tax Fraud or Tax Evasion
- Business Fraud, Theft or Embezzlement
- Computer or Internet Fraud
- Money Laundering
