Re: Italian Mob Revenue Surges to $167 Billion From 2007

So, his power is relative as far as the news is concerned, but he hasn't secured his position as of yet? Do you think there's any chance of a new Mafia war? It's not even clear if Messina Denaro is attempting to become the new "boss of bosses." In the Mafia of today, there really couldn't be one. T...

Re: Russian Mafia

Ah, are their organizations pretty much "equal" is terms of power and scope? I would say no. The Solntsevskaya is considered to be one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful in Russia, and has interests around the world. Mogilevich's organization has extensive interests in a variety of coun...

Re: Most Powerful Mobster Among OC Groups

This question may be hard to definitely answer since it's trying to put a hard label on an ambiguous topic, but if you absolutely had to place someone in each legitimate OC element as the single, most powerful person -- who would it be? For instance, who is the most powerful criminal in LCN, Camorr...

Re: OC Ranks

The Cosa Nostra in Sicily is somewhat different than it's counterpart in the United States. Each clan has a boss or capo. It's second in command is the sotto capo, which also acts as a regent (representative to other clans while the boss is in prison) and as an advisor. This is sort of like the und...

Re: Some updated LCN charts

Many on the internet have claimed so but he never was. He was set to become the new boss in the 1990's but was indicted before that could happen. He has always been a captain and was part of the family's committee in the 1990's set up to help Junior Gotti run the organization. His brother, Joseph C...

Re: Italian Mob Revenue Surges to $167 Billion From 2007

In recent years authorities have been nearly unanimous that the 'Ndangheta is now the most powerful of the Italian syndicates. It's probably debatable who is stronger between the Camorra or Cosa Nostra, though I would say probably the latter. The Sacra Corona Unita is smaller and not as stable or a...

Re: Some updated LCN charts

- So Nick Corozzo has never been the official Gambino boss?

- Who's this Paul DiMarco guy that wiki says is boss of Genovese?

- Is Crea still thought to take over as boss once his parole is done?

Organized Crime groups ranks; Ndrangheta, Russian, Yakuzu...

What are the ranks of the various Organized Crime elements that you know of?

For instance: we all know that LCN typically has boss/ub/consig/capo/soldier/associate. What about the Camorra, 'Ndrangheta, Russian Mafia, Yakuza, Drug Cartels, etc?

Re: Italian Mob Revenue Surges to $167 Billion From 2007

Is the Casalesi Clan still considered one of/the most powerful single criminal outfit in Italy? Any information on their current hierarchy? The Casalesi are the most powerful clan in the Camorra, one of the four major Italian syndicates. So they are certainly among the single most powerful groups i...

No, their organizations are simply allied with each other.

Re: Russian Mafia

Is Semion Mogilevich the Russian boss of bosses? Of course Mogilevich was arrested in January of last year. One former organized crime investigator I spoke with theorized it might have signaled a change in the politics over there and he lost his protection. In any event, he is a multi-billionaire. ...
