Susanna: What’s going on in the office next door? I heard that the police shut down their business.
Clark: You heard right. The cops had long suspected that the business operating out of that office wasn’t legit.
Susanna: Not legit?
Clark: Yeah, it was a front for money laundering. The so-called services it offered were a sham. It was a way for people to send them dirty money and for the business to legitimize those funds.
Susanna: But who was involved?
Clark: I’m not sure, but I imagine they’re people who want to evade taxes or to circumvent certain laws or regulations. I wouldn’t be surprised if their clients were people with underworld connections.
Susanna: You mean organized crime?
Clark: Yeah, they’re probably drug lords, smugglers, and racketeers.
Susanna: Wow and the people who helped them were working next door to us all that time.
Clark: And we didn’t know a thing about it. How awful.
Susanna: How exciting!
