This one feels a bit too broad as a technique (I could see it as an optional specialization of Streetwise, though). I think it would be better broken down into "Bribery" (covering estimating the values of bribes and presenting them in a non-offensive and subtle way), "Coverups" (covering keeping criminal activity in general secret), and "Recruitment" (covering judging whether a person is likely receptive to an offer to join a criminal enterprise, and making the offer in a way they'll understand, but isn't blatantly obvious to everyone).
