Georgia has nine separate articles in its criminal code for offenses related to forgery and fraudulent practices. Its regulations on banking and finance are even more extensive. Other administrative regulations may be backed up by the courts, as well. The breadth of these regulations demonstrate that white-collar crime is a large umbrella category that encompasses many potential infractions.
White-collar crime covers these offenses and more:
- Publishing false statements about the assets or liabilities of a financial institution
- Certifying checks beyond the amount available to the issuing institution
- Theft, trespass, invasion of privacy, forgery, or password disclosure via computer
- Using counterfeit identity information in order to obtain employment
- Using a device that falsifies information of electronic cash registers
