The Yakuza

The Yakuza, based out of Japan, is reputedly the world’s largest criminal organization with over 70,000 members, the Treasury reports.

The Treasury Department previously targeted the Yamaguchi-gumi and the Sumiyoshi-kai clans of the Yakuza, in February and September 2012, respectively, and now is targeting the Inagawa-kai, the third-largest of the Yakuza organizations, for acting for or on behalf of the Yakuza. The top three clans account for approximately 72.4 percent of the Yakuza membership, the government said.
