Extortion

Extortion is described as a criminal offense marked by the use of threats, coercion, or intimidation to obtain goods or services.

Extortion is sometimes confused with robbery, the unlawful gain of another person’s property through direct force or violence. Extortion is set apart from robbery as it illustrates the willingness of the victim to relinquish goods or services to avoid threatened harm.
