There was a trend in London in the 90's for little crews of youts calling themselves Triads this or that, because those crews did some associated foot work for groups like 14K. 14K and other Triad groups like Snakehead gangs operate from Chinatown in Soho, Central London, most of the 'business' is internally within the Chinese community and closed to the outside..

Chinese criminal elements have been in existence in the United States for more than 120 years. These criminals in the past victimized only people living in various Chinese communities. Chinese communities were somewhat homogeneous in previous years, consisting of Cantonese and, to a lesser extent, Toisanese speaking people from Hong Kong and Guangdong Province in China. Nowadays, the Chinese communities have become diverse, consisting of ethnic Chinese from Hong Kong, Taiwan, various provinces in China, Vietnam, Thai, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, and the Philippines. The dominant language is slowly changing from Chinese-Cantonese to Chinese-Mandarin. Chinese criminals who have become mature no longer just victimize individuals in their communities, but also victimize various U.S. institutions.

Based on the FBI's recent and past investigations, Chinese criminals represent the entire spectrum of Asian criminal enterprises in their criminal activities and their levels of criminality (from the simple street gang members to the quasi-legitimate businessmen with international connections). Compared to other Asian criminal enterprise investigations, the FBI's Chinese criminal enterprise investigations have consistently ranked number one in terms of the number of cases, the complexity of the cases, and the impact on the U.S. society.

In 1998, at least 44.93 per cent of reported pending Asian criminal enterprise cases are categorized as Chinese criminal enterprises. The following twenty-nine FBI field offices reported investigations related to ethnic Chinese criminal enterprises: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Honolulu, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, New Haven, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Richmond, Sacramento, St. Louis, San Francisco, San Diego, San Juan, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington Field Office. Most of these Chinese criminal enterprises have worked with criminal groups of other ethnic and racial backgrounds, such as Vietnamese, Korean, Filipino, Italian, Dominican, and Hispanic, so long as these groups have some areas of expertise that will facilitate their various profit making ventures. Even though most Chinese criminal enterprises have joined forces with criminals of other ethnic and racial backgrounds, the nucleus of Chinese criminal enterprises consists of only very few trusted ethnic Chinese individuals.

In recent years, the FBI has investigated Chinese gangs (including street youth gangs), criminally influenced Chinese Tongs, Chinese triads, and Chinese criminal enterprises. Most of these Chinese criminal groups are not unified entities. They consist of loosely organized independent criminal cells run by influential individuals or cliques of individuals. While a small hierarchy exists within the cells, there is no known central authority controlling each organization. The following charts indicates the names of nationally recognizable Chinese gangs, triads, and criminally influenced Tongs which the FBI has investigated in 1998.
