Embezzlement: Develop a strong defense

Embezzlement might not seem like it's hurting anything or anyone when you're doing it. Taking a small amount of money from a cash register each day and manipulating the data to show that nothing is missing is a good, simple example. The problem is that even if no one gets hurt, it's still a crime.

Dodging taxes can lead to serious consequences

It's a crime to try to avoid paying taxes, but many people try to get away with it. Tax evasion refers to individuals attempting not to pay taxes purposefully.

Fortunately, strong defenses can help prevent you from ending up behind bars.

The differences between pyramid schemes and multilevel marketing

You've seen it before; a post on social media stating that you can make $300 today if you'll just deposit $20 into a bank account for a program that can help you succeed.
