Most of what people know about crime syndicates and mafia families
around the world comes from movies, documentaries, and video games.
Crime syndicates might actually seem like a thing of the past, since
they’re not in the news as often anymore. However, many crime
syndicates are still alive and well, but they’ve started paying
more attention to keeping their organized crime more secret.

Russian Mafia

It’s difficult to say how deeply rooted organized crime is in the
politics of the country, but it’s undeniable that many oligarchs

Cali cartels

This one is all about drugs, and it’s crucial to the whole business

has been operating for 15 years between 1980 and 1995. It is
estimated that by the mid 90’s their empire was a
multibillion-dollar enterprise! Needless to say the cartel still
exists today, but it’s not what it used to be.
