Abstract Increasingly the media and academic publications bombard audiences with exposes and theoretical discourses on aspects of White Collar Crime, with little attempt to present case studies to better improve our general understanding of this area of deviance. Accordingly an urgent need exists for this type of presentation. The following discussion attempts to contribute to the fulfillment of this need. Instead of selecting the familiar topics of shoplifting and cheque frauds as a case study, I have concentrated on the more complex and less understood area of land fraud. In using a narrative approach to reconstruct the crime, the analysis tests the dramaturgical perspective as a tool of explanation. Dramaturgy has been generally discussed theoretically and to a lesser extent used as a perspective to explain social behaviors in a one scene context. This paper has a two-fold function, a) to stimulate awareness and increase understanding of an example of the white collar fraud act as a designed process and b) to establish the validity of this narrative approach utilizing dramaturgical analysis as a worthwhile case study review mechanism.
