What Is Embezzlement?
Embezzlement is a kind of financial fraud where a person entrusted with certain assets or property takes those assets or property for his or her own benefit. Some examples of embezzlement include:
- An investment specialist who takes a portion of his or her client’s funds
- An employee who defrauds his or her company for personal profit
- A cashier who takes a portion of the company’s profits
Many times people who are charged with embezzlement are employees who steal from the companies they work for or professionals who steal from their clients. The theft usually involves some kind of fraudulent scheme, either simple or complex.
