Accounting fraud is a crime that is considered to be a white collar crime. This means it takes place in the professional world, rather than other crimes which are considered to be street crimes.
The people who are often accused of accounting fraud work in professional offices in the corporate world. It could be a bank, a Fortune 500 company or any other professional environment. This kind of fraud is an attempt to hide funds, assets or other kinds of property.
The state statutes define fraud cases here, at RSA 638:26.
