Oh, look! Here’s an PERFECT example of retail money laundering.
Small biz, get rich quick plans.
Voila!

Feds say Texas college student in luxury car case tied to Knights Templar drug cartel - Chron.com

With the caveat that all of this comes from the prosecution side, so should automatically come with some skepticism.
Note that he first hit radar after getting stopped in IL, with $40K cash. Which was seized.

Pro-tip 1: if you’re going to an auction to buy cheap cars to sell on your sketchy car lot for No Money Down and 43% interest rates...

Auctions aren’t exclusively cash anymore. Visa.
Except buying cheap cars at auction for resale on sketch car lots for “Pay Here! No Money Down!” ?

This is also a form of money laundering. Not AS good as real estate, but it comes with paper property record that can be transferred.

Cheap cars can be legally bought for cash.
Let’s also note that our dude here had... a construction business, though which he laundered more money.

And he’s small time, friends & neighbors. Really. 5 & 6 figures. He’s low level, and can still operate with cashier’s checks & money orders. But this is how it works.
And he’s still going to community college.

Well, was.

That’s the thing to recall: most mooks in organized crime are dipshits. All the way up. This guy is smart only in comparison to the others around him.

Also true of the Trumps. There are bricks with more brains.
And yes, there is a Russian connection.
Because they’re the Mob now. Mafiya.
