For those charged with embezzlement or other white-collar crimes, these are non-violent crimes. A number of factors affect a California businessperson’s decision to indulge in embezzlement. According to Forbes, a number of environmental factors may cause people to succumb to white-collar crime. What triggers a person to turn to embezzlement? Is it a matter of disregarded ethics or instead a wider cultural problem?

As a non-violent crime, the common misconception involves embezzlement as a completely victimless crime. In fact, when someone embezzles, odds are he or she considers the money a loan and that he or she will return the money eventually. In addition, the culture that surrounds most businesspeople is highly aggressive and competitive. A person may feel measured by their goals or merit. If someone is unable to reach these goals in the timeline set, he or she may feel pressure to take less ethical routes to reach goals. In large-scale embezzlement cases, it is common for someone to believe that with such a large cash pile, no one gets hurt.

Another common trigger includes executives disagreeing with the laws or believing that it is a common practice. In fact, some would say that the culture accepts and encourages it. This severely downplays the consequences that a person might face because of embezzlement. There is absolutely a distance between the victim and the embezzler. That makes it much easier for someone to fall victim to his or her business culture.
