Property crime is one type of crime that can be either white collar crime or blue collar crime. There are many different types of property crime.

White Collar Property Crime

White collar property crime usually takes the form of embezzlement or fraud meant to trick someone out of their property or money. Embezzlement is committed by white collar workers with access to the finances of a business or entity, such as an accountant. It involves theft of money or equipment from a business or similar entity. Fraud can take many forms. But when it involves unlawfully taking property from someone else, it is considered a white collar property crime. Another example is extortion, in which you threaten someone in order to take their property or money.

Blue Collar Property Crime

Blue collar property crime is usually handled much differently than white collar crime. Blue collar property crime may involve theft of property or destruction of property. Examples of blue collar property crime include arson, robbery, larceny, burglary, and vandalism. These types of crimes may cause a fine, but most often jail time, community service, or probation are the typical punishments.
