Camp Springs is a census-designated place located in Prince George’s County, Maryland. It is an unincorporated area and does not have its own post office. Instead, the community is served by the postal services of Fort Washington, Temple Hills, Suitland and Clinton.
The community was founded in the 19th century, and was originally known as Allentown. It was named for the Allen family, who owned significant land and assets in the area. Although its initial development dates back to the 1860s, Camp Springs was not heavily developed until the 1940s and 1950s.
Camp Springs is a relatively small community, measuring less than 8 square miles. According to the 2010 census, Camp Springs is home to approximately 20,000 people, with more than 52% of residents being female. Compared to other communities in Maryland, Camp Springs has an older median resident age at more than 40 years.
Camp Springs residents also make more money than other communities in the state, with a median household income of $84,667. Less than 5% of Camp Springs residents live below the poverty level.
Because Camp Springs is located so close to major area markets, including Washington, Arlington and Alexandria, many city residents commute to work. On average, Camp Springs residents commute more than 30 minutes for their careers, with many area residents finding work in the military, government or business sectors.
The area is also home to a number of colleges and universities, so a number of education professionals take up residence locally. Although residents have a higher income and it is situated in the Washington metro area, Camp Springs is home to a mixed workforce, with neither white, nor blue-collar industries dominating the local economy.
Maryland’s communities are considered to be some of the most affluent in the nation. As a result, crimes such as fraud involving large sums of money may occur.
Fraud Offenses in Maryland
Although many consider crime to be violent in nature, non-violent crimes occur everyday, and come in many forms. In many cases, including fraud, financial gain is the main motive. In many fraud offenses, large sums of money are lost and there is little to no violent aspect.
Fraud is said to occur when one party allegedly deliberately uses deceitful or dishonest tactics to deprive the other party of their financial assets. Many fraud cases are referred to as white-collar crimes, sometimes involving individuals or businesses who have lost large sums of money, as is the case in embezzlement situations. But proving blame can be complex, as is the defense of the accusation.
