Requires the Corleono Challenge Pack DLC.

To access this challenge, start of the main menu, load your game, instead of selecting "Join the Family" select Corleono Challenges instead, select Takeovers, select Businesses, and finally select Collecting Dues.

During this challenge, you will be given 20 minutes to extort as many fronts and rackets as possible. To get the achievement, you must get at least 20. Being near level 50 is going to speed things up immensely and greatly increase your chances of survival.

If you are very near level 50, try not to ever draw your weapon. Just run into a shop and go straight to the owner. At this point they'll accept the offer without any struggle. Of there is a racket behind the front, bribe them then head off to the next.

If you are lower level, it isn't recommended that you attempt this, but if you do, you are going to have to fight your way in. Kill any enemy mobsters so they don't get in your way. Once it is clear, do the extortion minigame on the owner. Only aim for the green line, don't try to get the most out of them, no sense in the risk during this challenge. If there is a racket, bribe them, there will probably be more enemies back there.

Either way, try to plan your route wisely so you don't have to do much backtracking. Also, avoid warehouses/hubs, they take too long to extort.

Personally, I managed 25 using the first method on my first try. I'm not going to say that it is impossible to do it below level 40 or so, but it is highly unlikely.
