Pop culture is full of stories where the hitman is a lone wolf, mysterious, always male, waiting in the shadows until the moment is right to act. He always does his job with detachment and surgical precision. But he’s never cruel, he’s just doing his job, he’s a professional.
But reality never looks so clean. Guns still jam, blood splatters everywhere, and innocent people are sometimes caught in the middle.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Hitman?
All over the world, it is illegal for people to hire a hitman, so this is surely not something you should consider and most offers you will get are likely scams or some undercover police, as no clear-minded individual would advertise themselves as a hitman. Though, it is said that the price to hire a hitman starts at around $10,000 and goes up to $50,000 or more.
According to some underground websites, a standard job for a hitman costs from $10,000 upwards and includes getting rid of dogs, ordinary citizens, and family members, but it is a highly illegal activity.
The client chooses his preferred job method. The 2-in-1 job costs at least $15,000 and includes couples, parents, people, their pets, etc. This crime is usually carried out by a trained individual like the mafia, or gangs which remain in anonymity. The VIP job costs a minimum of $30,000 and includes stars, notorious personalities, and politicians.
Prices depend on the products and services, more specifically on how you want to have the job completed. For a “simple crime with a knife or a gun on the principle of “hit and run/shoot and run” the price is $20,000, for a “crime that looks like robbery” you will spend $30,000, you will spend the same amount for detectable poisoning.
If you want to poison someone without the poisoning being forensically inferred, you should pay $100,000, and for uglier services, the cost can reach $200,000.
The costs also depend on the country. For instance, in cities like Mumbai, India, crimes are being committed for as little as $100, as the comparison below, made by another underground site, shows.
Comparative payments by country:
