Financial crimes are crimes against property, involving the unlawful conversion of the property belonging to one person, to another's own personal use and benefit. Financial crimes may involve multiple types of fraud; theft; embezzlement; identity theft; forgery and counterfeiting, including the production of counterfeit money, checks and credit cards.

Financial crimes may involve additional criminal acts, such as computer crime, elder abuse, burglary, armed robbery, and even violent crime such as robbery or murder. Financial crimes may be carried out by individuals, corporations, or by organized crime groups.
