Eurasian Organized Crime

Eurasian organized crime (EOC) encompasses organized crime groups originating from any of the 15 republics that made up the former Soviet Union. A more common term used by many law enforcement authorities and the media is “Russian organized crime” (ROC), although the term is not entirely accurate. While some of the criminal groups originate from Russia, others are from 18 Bureau of Investigation and Intelligence.

Soviet émigrés began arriving in the United States during the 1970s and 1980s in order to escape religious and political persecution. After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia eased travel restrictions across its borders, resulting in another wave of émigrés arriving in the United States. While the majority of these immigrants were law abiding, a criminal element also emerged.

EOC groups in California are predominantly Armenian, Russian, and Ukrainian. Concentrated areas of EOC activity exist in Fresno, Glendale, the greater Los Angeles area, Sacramento, San Francisco, and San Diego. EOC members are highly successful in adapting to a variety of criminal schemes. Numerous EOC groups continue to operate in California, engaging in arms trafficking, auto theft, cargo theft, extortion, murder, prostitution, money laundering, drugs, insurance fraud, recycling fraud, smuggling, immigration fraud, and human trafficking. The main criminal activities of EOC groups in the state are medical fraud, financial fraud, and auto theft.

EOC groups stage auto accidents that yield high profits at relatively low risk. Staged accident rings typically consist of cooperative doctors and clinics, lawyers, chiropractors, and office administrators. The EOC ring thoroughly rehearses its drivers and witnesses prior to a staged accident so they provide detailed and consistent stories. The accident is staged, a police report is obtained, and the ring files fake claims for legal and medical services. The ring reaps thousands of dollars in insurance settlements for each phony incident.

EOC groups are proficient with financial fraud, stealing vast amounts of money from unsuspecting victims. Law enforcement officials are quick to identify EOC fraud trends and warn the public about the scams. However, EOC members are quick to adapt new scams to remain one step ahead and continue their criminal activity.

Two of the most common EOC financial frauds are credit card/identity thefts and automated teller machine (ATM) or point-of-sale (POS) credit card skimming. According to law enforcement sources, it is very difficult to stop this type of activity once account information has been compromised. Suspects are able to create and use new cards with existing account information before the victim notices the unauthorized credit account activity.

Auto theft is another lucrative EOC activity. Oftentimes, vehicles are stolen and shipped overseas where EOC members can receive up to three times the value of the car. In California, EOC members will sell vehicles under market value through print or Internet advertising. Unsuspecting buyers discover their newly purchased vehicles are stolen when attempting 19 Bureau of Investigation and Intelligence Organized Crime in California Annual Report to the California Legislature 2007­2008 registration with the Department of Motor Vehicles. EOC groups also steal vehicles, disassemble them, and store the stripped parts. When a vehicle is recovered by law enforcement authorities and is designated a salvaged vehicle, the EOC group purchases the stripped vehicle at the auto auction and reassembles it with the stored parts. The vehicle is then sold for a large profit.

Some EOC groups engage in extortion and kidnapping. Extortion and kidnapping rings are typically aimed at people within their own ethnic communities because they are generally afraid to report criminal acts to law enforcement. Such an extortion case was concluded in 2007 after two EOC members were convicted and sentenced to death in Los Angeles, following a kidnapping for ransom scheme. The convicted EOC members kidnapped affluent Russian immigrants and extorted their families for large sums of money. They then killed the five victims and dumped their bodies in a northern California reservoir.

Some EOC groups traffic heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and ecstasy. It is suspected that some EOC members may have strategic alliances with DTOs for the exchange of weapons for drugs.

EOC rings are active in human smuggling and trafficking. Their international network of contacts and expertise in counterfeiting documents enables them to import women from Eastern Europe and Russia with falsified visa applications. If they are unable to obtain documentation, the women are smuggled into the United States through Mexico. Once in California, EOC members force them to work in prostitution, strip clubs, and massage parlors. EOC groups frequently confiscate their victims’ travel documents while forcing them to pay off travel debts.

EOC groups will use the Armenian Power (AP) street gang to perform certain crimes. The AP gang began in Hollywood in the 1980s. Today it exists in a section of Hollywood known as “Little Armenia,” as well as in North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Burbank, Glendale, and Fresno. AP differs from most street gangs because its members support organized crime. The gang is primarily interested in making money rather than competing for territory like most street gangs. AP members engage in credit card/identity theft, extortion, insurance fraud, Medicare fraud, and money laundering. Some AP members may advance to become full-fledged EOC members.

I'm sick of your posts on my thread. The majority of the thread is drawn from the annual report on organized crime to the state legislature of California, cited in the out-of-character section and is only here to provide a background to Eurasian organized crime and does not reflect on this faction whatsoever.

I have no clue what you're talking about, but clearly you must provide evidence that you're the creator of this thread. It's clearly stated in following rule; " 4.) Copy-pasting is not allowed, unless you have permission from the original author. "
