Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the issue of violence with respect to white-collar criminals.

Design/methodology/approach – The analysis is conceptual, focusing on the historical underpinnings of white-collar crime and reviewing the evolution of white-collar criminals.

Findings – Findings suggest that white-collar criminals do display violent tendencies and, contrary to popular belief, can become dangerous individuals.

Practical implications – The paper represents an extremely useful and practical source for fraud examiners and other white-collar crime investigators. Raising the awareness of investigators dealing with white-collar criminals may prevent them from becoming victims of a violent act.

Originality/value – The paper fulfills a need to highlight a dangerous trend with white-collar criminals in that they may be driven to violence against those involved in investigating their crimes.
