Economic crime is a broad term that refers to any type of crime that involves some form of financial gain or loss. It includes activities such as fraud, money laundering, bribery, insider trading, embezzlement, cybercrime, counterfeiting, and tax evasion.
Fraud is an intentional deception or misrepresentation made by a person with the aim of gaining an illegal or unfair advantage. Money laundering is the process of disguising the origin of money obtained through illegal activities, such as fraud, so that it appears as legitimate income. Money laundering is a criminal offense and is often used to conceal the proceeds of other illegal activities.
