Extortion is a serious white collar crime that involves taking money or property from another person by wrongfully threatening that person or threatening the person’s family, property, or reputation. In committing extortion, a person may tell the victim that he or she will offer “protection” or will refrain from harming the victim or the victim’s family if a certain amount of money is paid.

Blackmail is another form of extortion wherein the perpetrator demands money or goods in order to refrain from releasing potentially damaging information about the victim or a member of the victim’s family. Although it is not a criminal act to disclose the information, it is a crime to demand money in exchange for not disclosing it.
