The Vice Assassination is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Franklin Clinton by Lester Crest.


Franklin arrives at a payphone at Legion Square where he is contacted by Lester. This time, Lester wants Franklin to assassinate Jackson Skinner, the head of product development for the company Facade. According to Lester, Skinner has been selling customer information to the highest bidder, in effect supporting cyberterrorism. 

Lester has learned that Skinner has a taste for working girls, specifically one in La Puerta in Los Santos. Franklin heads to Mutiny Road where he finds the girl in question. Franklin stakes out the prostitute, watching her turn away a number of potential johns. When the girl finally does enter a car, Franklin kills Skinner. After leaving the scene and escaping any potential wanted level, Franklin calls Lester and reports that the job is done.

Liberty Tree Newspaper

"Facade's Jackson Skinner, the Head of Product Develoment, has been murdered. Outspoken Skinner, who was always unapologetic about Facade's aggressive licensing policies and ruthless domination of the operating system market, had found himself at the center of a data mining scandal in recent weeks. On its own, this wouldn't be motive enough to suggest a conspiracy but, following in the wake of the Bilkinton and Redwood assassinations, many are starting to ask the question - is there a vendetta against corporate greed happening in Los Santos? We will continue to report on this story during any gaps in far more important East Coast news."

Stock Tip

  • Pre-mission preparation:
    • For maximum profit, delay starting this and subsequent assassination jobs until after the completion of the main story line, when you will have the proceeds of The Big Score to invest.
    • Make sure it's Monday, if not, keep sleeping with any of the protagonists numerous times to advance the time to Monday. (Trevor can sleep for 12 hours)
    • Invest all the money of all three protagonists in Fruit Computers stock on the Bawsaq site.
  • Post-mission:
    • Wait a couple of in-game hours before selling the stocks, so they can reach their maximum value. This one is faster, it will only take 6-8 hours, so it's not necessary to sleep.
    • The maximum percentage of return here is about 50%, after reaching this value it will start to drop. Switch to all three protagonists and sell all their stocks.
    • Now, invest all the money of the three protagonists in Facade stocks.
    • Wait for 48 hours in game so the stocks can reach their maximum value, the fastest way to advance time is sleeping with Trevor.
    • The maximum percentage of return here is about 33%, after reaching this value it will start to drop. Switch to all three protagonists and sell all their stocks.

Note: save the game in a different slot before doing this mission, so you can reload in case anything goes wrong.




  • Once Franklin has assassinated Skinner, the radio in his vehicle will be tuned to Los Santos Rock Radio and "Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake" by the Small Faces will always play.
