***Pimping

Quote
Pimping 101 Crew: 1+
Racket: Pimping
Info: Like any good Mafia/Gang, we have our own business in the "Entertainment" Industry. We call it the "Midnight Escorts".
Equipment: Vehicle (Ideally a Manana or Peyote etc..). Fists.
Plan: At night time approach some of our Escorts slowly. Exit the Vehicle a distance away (in order not to spook them) and walk towards them. Walk into the Escort for 2 seconds or more, until she reacts.
Plan A: She will say something and walk away. This is good this means she has paid you your cut and is heading home.
Plan B: she says something then starts running away.. This means either she refuses to pay you your cut or worse, is under the protection of a new Pimp. In any case if she runs, knock her to the floor and take all her cash.


**Fence

QuoteRP Impromptu "Family Business"


**Loan Sharking

Quote
Loan Sharking 101

Crew: 2+
Racket: Loan Sharking
Info:
The process of meeting people (NPC), accepting or rejecting their requests for a Loan. Documenting this process then securing a *Debt Collector to retrieve the Debt later on.
Equipment:
Up to you.
Plan:
Using RP, come up with situations and stories, documented by Journals in which you are giving someone a Loan. Drive around, find someone who is standing and meet with them. They have asked you to meet due to wanting a loan. Take a Snapmatic of that person, make sure you capture their physique and face , close up. Post this Snapmatic on your Racket thread and perhaps get in contact with a *Debt Collector about chasing down this guy and collecting. Only rule is that no Loan can exceed $20,000. Mademen have a limit of $50,000 to loan. It would draw too much heat to get involved in amounts above this. Usually its small time loans or short advances. Dock workers, gamblers and other desperate people. This is real old school Mob work.


**Drug Distribution - Sales

Quote
Drug Dealing - Advanced

Racket: Drug Distribution.
Crew: 3+
Info: You have picked up an official Bag of Coke from Location C, Listed on a "Connect" thread. If you die and this Backpack is lost, it is gone and you cannot re-enable it. In any case now you wish to sell it.
Equipment: Backpack (Parachute), Weapon.
Plan: You will need to organize two other members to join you. Each of you will have a role in making sure this is sold without being too obvious. Do not wear anything too fancy or noticeable. You don't want to stand out. Go to an area in town that is suitable, be smart in where you decide to sell your product, as this may become YOUR corner, who knows... OK you have found your spot. Your goal is to sell the Bag of 100g. However you will be selling it in 10g Packages, each called a Stick. There are ten Sticks in a Bag.

Bag Man: One member stays off the street maybe in an alley way or somewhere not visible from the streets. note the exits in case something happens. This member must have the Bag (Parachute/Backpack) equipped. Backpacks CAN be passed by standing next to each other and "swapping". Bag man Must keep track of sales.

Money Man: This is the guy who will be initiating business. He will be standing out there on the street gauging peoples interest as they walk past. When a civilian approaches on the pathway, the Money Man should start walking side by side with this Civ. Maybe letting them know the great deal they could be getting, and how our shit is the best in town etc.. if the Civ agrees (RP) tell them to keep walking and your man will bring the product. take the money (but never bump them, touch or alter their course) and give the "signal" to your Runner.

Runner: Your job is to hang back, but in sight of the Money Man. You will see him walking next to civilians. If you see him perform the Action "Bro Love" this is the "signal" that the customer has agreed and paid for the Stick. Now your job is to get to the Bag man, and receive a Stick from him, 10g. Walk back out and find the Civilian. walk next to them for a moment and then perform the Action "Bro Love" to give them the Product. Do not trouble them. We will lose a good business reputation if they buy from us then come up dead or beaten. Once the Runner has given them the Stick, the Money Man should go to the Bag man and hand them the money, so that 95% of the time, the Money Man and the Runner are not holding anything incriminating. then rinse and repeat. If you see a police vehicle at any point... Make sure that the Bag man escapes. even if the Police car is just passing by. Get the bag man out of there, Money Man and Runner stay cool.. Each sale the team makes (for the sake of ease as apposed to realism) is 10g. So ten sales and the Bag is finished. Now the bag contains Money. Take that money Backpack to Location C as detailed by the "Connect" thread, All 3 Members will receive their cut. Add a Comment including the number of Bags left in the Comment before you, -1 of course. Also add a simple journal with at least three snapmatics of you dealing the Bag with your crew. One at Picking up, one at Dealing, One at drop off. Do it right and enjoy the whole process, take your time.

*Embezzlement

QuoteRP Impromptu "Family Business"


*Extortion

Quote
Extortion 101

Crew: 2+
Racket:
Extortion
Info:
The oldest trick in the Mob book.. Get someone to pay you to protect them... from yourself.
Equipment:
Melee Weapon or Pistol or Gasoline.
Plan:
With two or more Members.. Drive up to a Store. Get out, maybe crack your knuckles, then head into the store.. The Clerk will see Mercanti's coming and should start preparing his Street Tax. If he does not offer it up right away.. perhaps have a word to him.. if still nothing maybe pour a little Gasoline on his chocolate bars. Maybe quickly show him that you brought a gun with you (aim at him for a second). Highest Ranked Member collects the take. Anyone with Heat goes off separately to those who don't, till heat dies down.


*Vehicle Theft

Quote
Vehicle Theft 101

Crew: 2+
Racket: Vehicle Theft (Night Time Only)
Info: The simplest and most effective way to steal a Vehicle for profit.
Equipment: Dark clothing. Black Sedan (ideally)
Plan: Drive around with a partner at night time. Dont speed, don't draw attention. Search around for carparks and small streets. Anywhere that you can find a suitable vehicle that has NO civilians in sight of it. When you have found an ideal place, one Member gets out and walks to the Vehicle.. Do not pull up right next to the target in your Vehicle.! if anyone is too see the Vehicle theft they should not also be able to make out the Vehicle you arrived in. The member who is breaking in does so and Hot-wires the car and drives off towards the specified destination. The other member, in the original car stays put in sight of the Theft.. To make sure that no one saw it or no one shows up right after the event.. Once clear, both cars meet up. Now the orignal Car will drive ahead towards a Family Chop Shop, with the Stolen car a few hundred meters behind. If the front car sees ANY Police, they must warn the stolen car to turn off this road. Take the vehicle to the Chop Shop and collect your money... No Heat!


*Laundering

Quote
Laundry 101

Crew: 1+
Racket:
Money Laundering
Info:
When a Ranking Member comes to you with a few bags of cash from illegal income streams. Using a Snapmatic showing them at Racket HQ with Backpack on, it needs to be cleaned by adding the dirty money slowly into a legitimate income stream, ideally one that receives Cash as payment on a regular basis.
Equipment:
Establishment which contains *Laundering. Parachute.
Plan:
When someone shows you a Snapmatic of them selves at the Establishment you operate with a Backpack on. You can launder the Money and request an Associate comes to the Establishment, picks up a Backpack and delivers it to the Ranking Member who originally brought the money to be laundered. An important part of doing Mercanti Business, the right way..

Cash collection for Ms Rose

Jay was contemplating what he would do today as he sat at his laptop in his apartment, going through emails from friends, family and FAMILY members, reading about what they have been up to.

Phoenix walks over and sits down next to him and says..
'Have you heard theres been some impressive jobs done lately?'
'Yep I have hun, looks like things are going great for the family' Jay says
'A friend over in LX in the family has told me about a daring heist that claimed some nice money' says Phoenix.
'Well done them, hope I can help in one of those some day' praises Jay.

At that the mobile rings and its Ms Rose 'I have a job for you if your interested jay, can you get some guys together and go collect something for me?'

'Of course, glad to help' says Jay
'OK will be in touch soon with details' says Ms rose.

As Jay headed to the door, he turned to Phoenix and said..
'I will be in touch hun after i hear from Ms Rose about the details of this job, please be ready to get any vehicle etc sorted for us to use' and turns and heads out the door.

Doing the Laundry

Jay was out cruising in his Alpha when he got a call.

'Hey Jay, its Rose, can you stop by the club for a chat, I have a job for you if your interested?'
'Oh that sounds great Rose, will be there soon.'

He turns around and drives up to Hornbills for the meeting.

As Jay approached the club, he thinks to himself..

'Its looking busy tonight, look at the line and oh, the girls are out plying their trade as well. Rose has everything running great up here.'

He thinks that to be safe, he will park round back out of the way, then turns in and pulls into a spot.

Jay walks up from the carpark and approaches the door..

He knocks and the door is answered by this big guy, Jay thought to himself 'Omg this guys huge, no one will mess with Rose when this guys about'...

'Yes' he asks 'who are you? oh wait, are you Jay?'

'Yes I am' he replies.

'Thats good, the boss said to expect you, come on in, shes in her office.'

'Lead on m8' Jay says.

The security, leads jay down the corridor to Ms Roses office and knocks at the door.

'Boss, Jays here to see you'

'Thats great thanks, show him in' says Rose.

Jay walks in and is greeted by Rose whos looking stunning, and at his look, Rose replys 'what, oh this outfit, just been doing some important business and dong my hostess duties and mingling with my customers.'

'Nice' says Jay 'What would you like to discuss with me?' he asks.

'I have money that needs to be laundered discreetly, and you have done great work for me in the past, are you up for this job?'

'Of course' he says, 'How much will i be dealing with?'

'225k, can you handle that amount?'

'Yes thats possible, will go speak with Phoenix and come up with a way to handle that and be back for the money, is that ok?'

'Thats great thanks, that Phoenix of yours has a good head on her shoulders and anyway, us Mercanti girls should stick together lol.'

Jay laughs and agrees 'Shes one smart lady, if anyone can come up with something, she can.'

'Ok give me a call when you have things sorted your end and will have the money ready for you to pick up'

'Not a prob Rose, speak soon then.'

And they get up and shake hands and he gives her a kiss on the cheek and leaves and the security guard leads him out the back door....

Helping out Alphonso


Gastoeter and Adelaide are walking on the Vespucci Beach. I was reading through my notifications, and I saw that Alphonso needed something from me. He said that Los Santos had one of the finest girls, and since he is starting with Hornbills, he would like to have one of the girls from Los Santos. I talked with Gastoeter and we decided to search Vespucci Beach for one girl.

I took out an cigarette, and I lightened it up. I started smoking, but Gastoeter pulled out the cigarette out of my mouth and he stamped it on the ground. He said that an girl like me shouldn't smoke at all. I looked forward to push out an cigarette in his face when I could. But well, he was an good friend of mine. And I appreciate him saying that. After five minutes, I saw two trannies on the beach. I laughed, I pulled and started running with Gastoeter to them. I asked if I could have an picture with them, and they laughed both. We both smiled and Gastoeter made an picture with me and the trannies. It was excellent doing this, but it wouldn't be an stripper for the Hornbills. Gastoeter and me thanked the girls and we both walked away on the beach again.

After an while, we saw two girls on the corner. It wasn't really classy, but it was enough for the beginning of Hornbills in Los Xantos. It was the one of the proud of Los Santos, like an horse, but not an tiger. You know how it goes. We walked to one of the girls, but that one runned away while she saw Gastoeter. I didn't know why actually. We walked again to the other girl, and we asked if she was searching for permanent work in Los Xantos. She was happy with the fact that she still could dance in clubs. She said yes, and we walk with the girl to the vehicle.


Gastoeter started the vehicle, an I opened the door for the girl. I had an associate from Los Xantos arriving at the airport for the girl, she was pretty important because Hornbills needed these girls. After an half hour driving, Gastoeter arrived at the airport. The gate was opened and the plane was already there. I opened my vehicle again and helped her out of the vehicle. The associate from Los Xantos walked to the girl and helped her inside the plane. I said to her that she should give the greetings to the owner of Hornbills, Alphonso White. She said she would do that. I laughed and Gastoeter and me waved to her, while the plane was going in the sky.
