The New York Times’ white-collar cheat sheet

Many people in Tennessee often wonder how white-collar crime goes on for so long undetected. In 2018, the NY Times published an article that covered information on how white-collar offenders got away with their activities. Two of the most common reasons white-collar offenders slip under the radar is the internet and tax havens. Some of the methods highlighted by the article include the following:

State and federal charges for drug crimes

The Tennessee laws that govern drug crimes may not be the only factors in determining charges for an accused individual. Federal laws may apply as well. In some cases, the penalties related to federal charges may be more severe than those related to state drug laws. Both types of convictions may have significant consequences for years to come. State charges often occur for drug possession crimes whereas activities related to trafficking and distribution frequently lead to federal charges.

Bank fraud shows no signs of dying down any time soon

Bank fraud can happen anywhere to anyone and Tennessee is no exception. In 2017, CNBC reported that account-takeover fraud was on the rise and could drain a person’s bank account. To do this, someone else sources a bank user’s personal information and uses it to gain access to their account and transfer money. Between 2015 and 2016, this type of fraud increased by 61% and led to $2.3 billion in losses.

What is Medicare fraud?

The federal Medicare program provides benefits to patients and health care providers in Tennessee by making medical care more affordable and accessible. However, some criminals target this government program when they are planning health care fraud schemes. When Medicare fraud occurs, there may be several consequences to providers and patients. Understanding the warning signs may help you recognize and report suspicious activity to the proper authorities.
