Scan as many ships as possible for contraband or valuable wares. You have to be within 4 km of a ship to scan it.

Commentary and Strategy
Just scan everything you can find in the sector. You will receive a % worth of the illegal goods you find, but even if you don't you will get paid for each ship scanned. If you do a pirate scan mission, it is essentially the same, but you get paid a much lower % however instead of just receiving money for illegal goods, you get paid for all (or so they claim) the goods you scanned.
