FBI Library Guide

Chinese organized crime is unique because the diverse groups are different than criminal enterprises in Italy, Russia, and Japan. Unlike other country’s criminal networks, Chinese criminal organizations are not collectively known as the “Chinese Mafia,” but instead are mostly localized groups that can be referred to as triads, tongs, or street gangs. Chinese criminal enterprises are dangerous groups involved in many illicit activities such as murder, extortion, robbery, human smuggling, drug trafficking, prostitution, gambling, and loansharking. Chinese criminal organizations have substantial networks, influences, and authority in the People’s Republic of China (China), Republic of China (Taiwan), and internationally, especially in countries that have a substantial Chinese population
