What Is Embezzlement

Embezzlement occurs when a person in a position of trust and responsibility commits a theft of assets (money or property). It is classified as a white collar crime and is typically committed in an employment or corporate business setting. An example of embezzlement would be: while working as a CEO in a major company, Mr. Smith alters invoices and charges several businesses a higher amount for services and then pockets the extra money. Embezzlement may range from a very minor offense to a large offense involving large sums of money and a well-thought out scheme.
