Top 10 Most Dangerous Criminal Organizations in the World


At this point in time, it is safe to assume that everybody knows what a ‘mafia’ is and what kind of activities these type of criminal organizations involve themselves in. As a rule of thumb, most of these criminal enterprises engage in drug trafficking, smuggling, robbery, drugs, and murder. Most of the time, organized crime is successfully stopped by law enforcement authorities but sometimes, the most ingenious of these organizations manage to grow. By doing so, they sometimes grow to the point where they manage to control the majority if not all aspects of a community.

These mafias usually operate on a pyramidal chain of command with a boss making all major decisions, a person we may call a ‘don’ if you will. Unlike regular enterprises, however, they do not decide what budget to be used within the next financial semester, but rather what route to take throughout their criminal dealings. Without further ado, here is our top ten most dangerous criminal organizations in the world at this time.

8The Albanian Mafia

Originated in Albania, these individuals operate on an international level and have been known to be involved in arms trafficking of the highest order in recent years. Surprisingly enough, their numbers are rather small within Albanian borders, with the bulk of their organization operating in most European countries and the United States. This crime syndicate works on the basis of “Besa” which translates roughly to “Code of Honor”, and it is something every member of their organization takes seriously.

Admission to this group is granted after certain trials at the end of which, individuals who want to be part of the group must take an oath chaining them to the crime family for life. One of the most notorious individuals within the group is Daut Kadriovski, an individual who is thought to be the head of the organization.
