Despite one in three American households falling victims to white-collar crimes, only 41 percent actually report it. Of those reported, a mere 21% made it to the hands of a law enforcement or consumer protection agency. It means that less than 8 percent of white-collar crimes are reported to the authorities. These statistics are unsettling as they cost the nation hundreds of billions of dollars every year.
There is a marked disparity between how people believe they will react when they are victimized and what they actually do when they are victimized. Often, they fail to perceive the offenses committed to them as crimes. They are also not sure which agency to contact and if the offenders would be apprehended at all. Also, considering the amount of government funding allocated to the control of "street crime" there has been relatively little money set aside for dealing with white-collar crime. This is due in part to a long-standing belief that the public is apathetic towards white-collar offenses and offenders.
According to the passage, which of the following are the reasons for Americans failing to report white-collar crimes?
(Choose all that apply.)
