The threats may include revealing harmful information, causing injury to the person or his/her loved ones, property damage, starting a strike, or the threat of arrest

While bribery and blackmail are completely different crimes in nature, they can both be contributing elements of extortion.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][ultimate_heading main_heading=”By What Means Can You Commit Extortion?” alignment=”left” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:26px;” main_heading_line_height=”desktop:32px;” main_heading_margin=”margin-bottom:20px;” main_heading_style=”font-weight:bold;”][/ultimate_heading][vc_column_text]According to U.S Extortion law, it can also happen through the phone, by mail, or by using any instrument of ‘interstate commerce’.

Individuals, businesses and alleged criminal enterprises can be charged with extortion. In addition, public officials and law enforcement officers may be charged with extortion if they accept money illegally in exchange for performing certain actions. The penalties for conviction depend on the nature of the crime, but they may include a jail or prison sentence, fines, and restitution to the victimized party.
