How does someone get out of extortion?

To start it off extortion nowdays is quite rare because the risk of it is very high from law enforcement. I’ll try to give my two cents very shortly from the blackmailer’s POV.

 

If you’re going to extort someone ICly you best be prepared to be business partners with the other party. If you’re going to extort someone you will also have to offer something back or help them push through with their business so it is more fair to both parties, that way the earnings will be bigger for both of them. The party being extorted should take advantage of the blackmailer by asking for stuff that they need, if the blackmailer doesn’t come in aid you’ll kick up lower next week to him and mostlikely he’ll confront you about it and when that time comes you’ll tell him that he didn’t get what he need so he could earn. The extortion should go both ways. If the blackmailer demands to get only the kick-up he’ll mostlikely be killed or end up getting pinched by law enforcement. And I’ve seen this happening ICly.

First of all extorters should do their research, be it a fish market or more expensive bar. Cause fish market may belong to a gang already and the bar? Well here are two IC stories that actually happened in the game. 1st one, a bar owner in Vinewood was approached by few mobsters, they asked for money every week, pretty simple. But they haven't done their research, as the bar belonged to a financial corporation, so next time mobs came for their money they were easily suprised and overpowered by a Swat team. Second example is a tattoo parlor, many people walked in demaning to speak with the owner and every time a police badge was flashed their way. Those are but examples, that show, that contacts are everything. Conclusion = you wish to extort something more lucrative than fish market? Work with those with infinite power over the city, government. Oh yes not to mention that more expensive venues usually have security contracts, sometimes more than one.

Some extortionists also ask for amounts that mean a business can't really run a profit unless the owners open it constantly, especially if it's a small niche business or one with a lot of expenses, wh

So you're not allowed to gun people down in broad daylight in the middle of the street, regardless if absolutely no soul is around. Because "It's unrealistic, that street would be very busy realistica

I think a relatively important question here is to ask administrators directly why they’re approving CKs for a simple store clerk or business owner calling 911.

How does someone get out of extortion?

 

 

You go on the forums, report everyone and generally raise fucking hell about it, because its 2021 and realistically few (if any) go door to door extorting local businesses with literal threats, violence and vandalism.

 

Criminals have gotten far more sophisticated a while ago. Extortion now happens through paperwork, a boatload of licenses, taxes and whatnot.

 

Get with the times.

You can either get another protection group, that's a lot tougher than the current one or speak to police and help them to do a sting-operation and bus the extortion dudes, but you'll probably face consequence of death and all that..bottom line is, eitherway..you can end up dead or gonna lose cash, that's one worry of owning a business, and to be frank..you make waaaaaaay more cash than what you lose for extortion.

Or you can just sell the business to someone else and go on vacation.

Because you know, if they ain't gonna roleplay extortion properly, why should I as business owner. To me personally, 

engaging in sub-par roleplay which may end up on a report, is just not really tempting. Given it's waste of time.

I would be willing to participate in an extortion roleplay if people simply put more effort into ir, cause how it is now, 8/10

extortions are poorly roleplayed and unrealistic.

Lol I love the responses that say, "Your options are to pay the tax, seek out other criminals, or potentially die." You all wonder why its only one or two types of businesses that ever open. 

 

This is not how extortion works in this day and age.

You can't CK your extorters, police can only put them in jail for sometime due to no RICO laws, and once they're out, you bet your ass you're getting cked due to landing the cops on them, or even while the main guy is in jail, one of his boys will ck you

if administration would just allow extorters to be cked this wouldn't be a problem lol, also would possibly allow for hitman roleplay to "take care" of the extortion team

I have witnessed quite a lot of extortion attempts personally on this server and every single one was a group or 1 dude pulling up in the middle of the day asking to speak to the manager (including 2 places with cctv props visible and a createscene), sometimes in the first hour of opening for the first time. All it is in its current (rule-free) state is a 1 sided low effort robbery without any limits. I managed to deal with these IC but its absolutely retarded how many people act like it's the 50s and how theres not a single rule for this.

That's all of them.

 

Honestly, it'd be much less tedious if they actually offered the protection that you'd think extortion would entail, but they don't even do that. I've had two separate groups try to extort me at the same time, neither having a care in the world about the other.

 

I've managed quite a few businesses and never encountered this mythical "extortion done right" so many advocates like to bring up as a counter argument.

 

Just gangsters wordlessly spamming bat attacks and yelling "you better pay up" before running away - and staff not doing anything about it when it was reported.
