When you watch the TV show “White Collar,” you are entertained and intrigued by the world of white collar crime. In the series, Neal Caffrey, a professional white collar criminal, is hunted down and captured — again — by FBI agent Peter Burke. But due to his vast knowledge of the seedy underworld of white collar crime, the Agency strikes a deal with Caffrey. In exchange for his help with catching other elusive white collar criminals, he will remain free (provided he wears an ankle monitor) but will be under the supervision of Agent Burke. Throughout the series, Caffrey and Burke (along with a cast of colorful characters) nab crook after crook. But Neal’s intentions have always been to live free and unchained and to live his life. Upon completing his service with the FBI, he has been promised his freedom.

A white collar crime is a nonviolent crime that is motivated by (large sums of) money that is committed by businesses and government professionals. The term came about in 1939 by Edwin Sutherland who stated it is “usually committed by someone of respectability and high social status during the course of their occupation.” White collar crimes can cost unsuspecting people millions or even billions of dollars over a period of time.
