What is white-collar crime exactly? 

White-collar crime is a broad term that covers a variety of nonviolent crimes that are alleged to involve cheating in one form or another. Examples of white-collar crime include allegations of fraud in its various forms, bribery, insider trading, environmental crime, embezzlement, forgery, tax evasion, kickbacks, and money laundering. According to the FBI, white-collar crimes total more than $300 billion annually.

What’s the difference between white-collar crime and blue-collar crime?

The most salient difference between white-collar and blue-collar crime is the means by which offenses are carried out. Blue-collar crimes most often involve physical force; white collar crimes, on the other hand, are inherently technical in nature, often involving the manipulation of information either on paper or electronically.
