What types of social and environmental factors might cause someone to engage in white collar crime?


    Many things i will name a few:
    Someone is mad at another person.
    Poor and homeless
    In need of money.
    Mad at the government.
    Hope I helped! :-)


    Greed should also be added to the list. The person who commits white collar crime perceives others as having more than he does.


    Opps! I forgot that one. Thanks! I will be studying that in a year so I am studying up! :-)
