Embezzlement is similar to fraud in many ways. Both are considered white collar crimes, as they both involve taking money or other property through technical means rather than through the simple physical taking that would lead to larceny or other standard theft charges.
The main difference with embezzlement from fraud is that an embezzler starts with authorized control over the property in question. One of the most common scenarios involves a company entrusting money or other property to some kind of agent, and the agent misappropriates those funds into his or her possession for personal gain. Embezzlement can be a slow process involving small takings over a long period of time, or a larger one-time taking.
