More important is the so-called white-collar-criminality. Just occasionally it can be necessary to consider offences like molestation (Notigung, Ass 240 StGB) or menace (Ass 241 StGB). Whoever threatens a person without a legal reason by violence/force or a vulnerable evil to an action, sufferance or omission, is punishable by law if the use of violence/force or threat of evil is reprehensible.

When a person menaces another person with the intention to prejudice the property of the other person to make himself or a third person rich comes a blackmail/extortion (Erpressung) into consideration.

Larceny is the punishable act of a person who takes away a foreign movable good to appropriate unlawfully as his own or a third person without having a legal reason.

An offence with a higher penalty is embezzlement (Untreue, Ass 266 StGB). The offence is complete when the holder uses the property of the owner for any purpose other than that intended or misuse the capacity to dispose of one's property. This offence can be important to business managers, authorized signatories or contributors of capital. « mai multe referate din Drept
