A rather unusual way were denunciations, people used the Gestapo/Police as a tool to "disappear" their enemies - usually their neighbors. This happened shockingly frequently.
Another would be bribe solicitation and extortion. Food falsification and adulteration was a huge problem too.

Why so much hate ? Louis Renault was hated by communists. Before the war he was accused of having ordered the assassination of several communists. He was really known as anti-communist. Some say that communists killed him while he was in jail as a revenge... At the time of his death, communist power was very high in the country.
Renault car company was officially therefore nationalized as a punishment for collaboration after the war.
