well I suppose there's many varieties of criminal.

being a criminal usually requires things that most people don't have.

for example many people tax dodge. thats a crime. the most common and mundane one.

then theres general thievery. burglary and robbery are rare. they're not big money makers.

drug addicts make more money from shop lifting to order than from burglary or robbery.

a lot of break ins are actually for car keys.

stealing cars is hit and miss. depends on what the demand is for. if its someone wanting an untraceable car or a garage wanting cheap stolen parts for repairs on vehicles that they charge you full price for said part.

then theres fraud. another big one. insurance fraud etc...

arson thats a big one. usually hand in hand with fraud or in rarer cases racketeering.

racketeering itself, forcing protection money from businesses.

a lot of security companies do this.

fraud is a really big money maker and varies greatly. it can be scams, or forms of internet crime, fake identities counter fitting all kinds of sneaky stuff. there's also general con artistry.

then there's heists like bank robberies, post office robberies, people sticking up restaurants etc... or stealing big lorry loads of trainers.

stealing construction equipment and even more popular construction materials.

then theres trafficking smuggling, human trafficking etc...

most of these things are quite difficult and risky to do. you'd be better spending your time learning for 10 years to become a doctor of a lawyer.

then of course theres drugs too.

black mail i mean the possibilities are vast.

all these crimes have cross over elements and some can be done by normal people going on their day to day and some involve large organized crime gangs or corrupt people in power.

i mean most people are criminals. i mean lying about your age to get into a club or buy booze is fraud.

how much money have you saved by downloading music and films illegally?

I am a criminal, I have broken laws repeatedly. Not laws in which there is any victim, but still.

Once upon a time I sort of did. It's not for everyone - only those who don't have a conscience and know how to get away with it. I'd only do it if it's something harmless. Things like selling drugs and **** are things that I wouldn't dare to do because I've seen what they can do to the most desperate people.
