Most Powerful Organized Crime Groups
The Top Ten
My father was a top member in the gambino family. He taught me there way of life. Rule#1 never rat! Those who are weak get out! This is real life not a movie... need to understand this. You know what your getting into before you do it. Don't give another a life sentence for your mistakes. Shut your mouth admit to nothing and do your time like a real stand up guy. We are gangsters not gang bangers... This is are way of life. Us against them it comes down to who is smarter. We have something they don't. We live the life they don't if it wasn't for rats they would never catch us. So if someone out there is wanting to be a gangster think about what I'm saying? It's all about money and respect. You have to be an earner..
The most organized, powerful mafia there is known. All of these gangs get their criminal activities from these people. These people are cold-blooded killers. If they wanted to get rid of these gangs they would. They are not educated people but know how to run illegal business. The word mafia is now used in a lot of gangs but in Italian it means swagger.
Italian mafia is still strong they just changed the way of doing business. They're not as strong as they once were but then again who is? They had more power than the US President no one In this day and age will EVER come remotely close to being that powerful so the next time you hear someone say the Italians are finished, tell them they're either naive or clueless they still have a stranglehold on much of the criminal underworld believe it or not.

I think the fact that we know relatively little about them in comparison to other groups such as the mafia should tell you something
Hopefully with all new anti-corruption campaigns, they get screwed soon. - MChkflaguard_Yt
Triads are the founding fathers of all organized crime.

One of the most ruthless mafias. Have taken over the organized crime underground of Milan.
The leader of the Medellin Cartel, Pablo Escobar, he alone was responsible for over a thousand deaths of law enforcement officers and civilians. The Medellin Cartel bought off almost all law enforcement officers, and also had countless officials in the Colombian government on their payoff list. They also dominated the worlds cocaine trade for years with no worthy contenders from outside nations.The Medellin Cartel alone generated close to $10B. When Escobar was killed and the cartel was diminished by Colombian law enforcement and the DEA, their rivals, the Cali Cartel, immediately took their place at the top of the cocaine trade and thrived.
Also the Italian mafia. The New York Mafia was the most powerful organized crime syndicate in the world since 1931. They dominated crime in the US just the five families in NY were the strongest crime figures in the United States. NYC was mafia territory and all oter gangs knew that they owned illegal businesses all over the city. There were no such things as gangs when they were around. Gangs started gaining power after the fall of the mafia in the city. They ran NYC. They had more power than the president and even the president said that about them. They bribed cops an they did whatever they wanted. Never payed for drinks and had a lot of territories in NY. They were just unstoppable but today there not well known.
This organized crime has the best resources and can take on the united states.
Controls 70-80% of cocaine in Europe, grew bigger than any other Italian mafia, close links to Colombian & Mexican cartels, operate in Northern American, Mainland Europe & Australia.
Who controls more than 3% of Italian GDP, has 10,000 members, and over $60 billion in yearly revenue and is a global player in crime and drugs? Not La Cosa Nostra.
Lots of the Serbian Mafia members are ex-military. They're dangerous, and ruthless. A smaller more organized Russian Mafia.
Under investigation by the FBI
They are sadistic killers who do the most inhumane torture possible for the sake of pleasure
