Embezzlement is a type of white collar fraud or theft that occurs when a person steals funds, property or anything of value over which he or she has legal control, but not legal ownership. Federal embezzlement cases typically involve theft from federal government agencies or offices, or federally insured banks. The amount stolen can have any value and can be taken in a lump sum or in small amounts over a period of time. Penalties for an embezzlement conviction can include imprisonment, thousands of dollars in fines, restitution and loss of your civil rights.
