This paper studies the past, present and the future of Eurasian organized crime in the United States. The author follows the trial of organized Eurasian Crime to the United States and reviews literature in this subject area. The paper discusses what crimes have been, are and will likely be committed in the United States if this complex and serious problem is not properly addressed proactively. The paper also suggests that participation, collaboration, and cooperative law enforcement networks that align with corporate and banking networks throughout the United States and across borders and boundaries networking with these entities and agencies in other countries is necessary if Eurasian organized crime groups are to be impacted greatly.
