White collar crimes are rarely black and white matters. It is not as simple as whether a person did or did not commit fraud. What may look like fraud on the surface could have a logical and legal explanation. In some cases, it comes down to what the person intended to do. Was the person's intent to defraud another party, or was an honest mistake made?
