The groups have poly-criminal activities, including violence due to the control of territory, encrypted communication, converting money into cryptocurrencies. There are many criminal groups that operate through call centers. The damage to the victims is in thousands of euros.

The most problematic cities are Tirana, Elbasani, Durrës, Vlorë, Kurbin, Shkodër, Laç, Fushë Krujë. In Fushë Krujë there is criminal activity such as murder and explosions. There is the presence of money laundering, which is also done with construction. Even terrorism is among the rarest criminal activities.

"One of the complex money laundering schemes in Albania involves the use of Albanian banks and businesses as intermediaries for international criminal organizations such as the Italian mafia ," Dumani said.
