Can you make dirty money clean again? Find out how some people do it in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:28 Explanations: 3:18 Fast dialog: 15:18 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! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
