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.
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.
克拉克:我们一点也不知道 。太糟糕了 。
