Primary Racket Activities:


***Smuggling - Export

QuoteRP Impromptu "Family Business"


**Corruption - Business

QuoteRP Impromptu "Family Business"


**Extortion

QuoteExtortion 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

QuoteVehicle 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!


**Drug Distribution - Sales

QuoteDrug 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.


*Loan Sharking

QuoteLoan 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.


*Embezzlement

QuoteRP Impromptu "Family Business"


*Pimping

QuotePimping 101


Crew: 1+
Racket: Midnight Escorts
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 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.


*Laundering


QuoteLaundry 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..

So Camron_Poe and myself decided to help our Vehicle theft racket grow some more by doing what we do best. Acquiring currently unused resources that would be better used to suit the family's monetary needs.

Corporate Espionage #1 Pt. 1


From the perspective of AgitoNoriama


I was chilling at the Los Santos Customs in Las Mes

a waiting for Prince to show up when I got a call f rom Trevor at his HQ.


Agito: "Las Mesa Customs Agito speaking how can I h elp you?"

 Trevor: "Hey Agito I need you to meet


me at my HQ in Morningwood, come armed but silent."


I imideatly put the phone on the hook and got in my Alpha and sped off to the Ponsonbys in Morningwood. When I got there I met up with Banana, Daniel, Zombies, Camron, Tyros, Agent, and Trevor. He then instructed us to change into stealt hy combat outfits while informing us of our task.


Trevor: "Alright you guys we are loosing money to t hose Binco fuckers, they released our new clothing


line before we had the chance to. Ponsonbys stocks


are falling making us loose money, I got informatio n


from my contact in Binco shipping where the shipmen ts are. We will be splitting into two teams, Agito


your leading Team A, I'll be leading Team B. The fi rst shipment is already being trucked to a nearby B inco


which my team will be going after, the second is st


ill on a freight ship at the docks. That's where yo ur


team comes in Agito, you'll be driving the getaway


car while Zombies and Daniel plant C4 on the


shipping container. Agent will be providing sniper


cover and relaying important information. Banana,


Camron, and Tyros your with me, alright lets head o ut."


Agent entered the driver seat of a car he aquired f or the mission and the rest of Team A piled in. We stopped letting Agent out with his sniper rifle at the crane nearest the freighter. I then entered the driver seat, turned off the lights, and parked alon gside the freighter behind a stack of crates lettin g Daniel and Zombies out. Daniel grabbed the C4, and Zombies a silenced AK74M. I heard no shots, reports of nothing over the radio, and then the ine vitable explosion as Daniel and Zombies where getting into the car. We drove over to the crane pi cking up Agent and then sped off to the nearest parking garage dropping off Zombies to grab a car a nd meet us at the canals. We arrived at the canals, Daniel planted C4 on the getaway vehicle while we awaited Zombies with the new car. When he got there we all piled in as Danie l detonated the explosives. We went back to the Ponsonbys in Morningwood changing into our normal c lothes when we got a call over the radio from Trevor.


Trevor: "Hey Agito you guys make it back alright?"


Agito: "Yes sir, no problems."


Trevor: "Alright mee t us over at the Binco clothing store by Grove Street."


Agito: "Sir yes sir."


We drove over to the Binco where Trevor was waiting with a trunkload of Tompsons which we promptly used on the store. Afterwards we all met up at the Vanilla Unicorn for some fun and relaxation.

Pimping for Trevor

Adelaide drives around West Vinewood, and an hooker stood there waiting for an customer to come. I drived to the girl, and I slowly walked out of my vehicle. I took an pistol with me, with an supressor. The girl started to panic, and I said slowly that she doesn't need to be scared. She just needed to pay her cut.

The girl looked scared to Adelaide, and she started to take the money from her work around Vinewood. She gave me the money, and I said that I wanted her to walk the corner, she runs away. I walked to my vehicle and drived off. The next time, she will not forget to pay her cut to the family.

Fresh Napalm

From the perspective of AgitoNoriama(Bob)


I had just gotten back from Paleto Bay after having to lay low for a while, figured I'd check in with Trevor and see what he's up to. I walked in and Trevor threw me a set of keys saying "Go to the Pegasus drop off and pick up the mule, bring it back here."

I did so and when I got back I saw him, Zombies, Camron, Banana, and Daniel standing there in combat stealth clothes. I changed into my set of similar clothes and was told to drive the mule to East Los Santos, El Burto Blvd.

Once there we hoped out and Trevor ordered us to kill anyone there, Sabitino guards, civilian workers, everyone. Afterwards Daniel, our demolitions guy blew up everything of importance.
