Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
The initial tip of this newly found cash came in from a neighbor that noticed something odd about the apartment. A nosy neighbor suspected something amiss. She saw a female person of interest, shabbily dressed coming and going at night with bags of clothes. She thought the woman might have been “homeless” by a disguise, and when the police had a hard time getting into the apartment building itself, their reasons were sustained.
That initial tip came because the Government of Nigeria in December 2016 started a new “whistle blower” campaign against government corruption. The incoming tips from this new program had already led to other large stash in the days before this find. In a smaller bust, a local market was found hiding cash adding up to $1.5 million in Nigerian naira. At another separate location, they also recovered $877,000 from a shopping center. Between December of 2016 and February of this year, tips helped to recover a total of $180 billion.
Under the Nigerian program the “whistle blower” may be entitled to anywhere between 2.5%-5.0% of amount recovered. In order to qualify for the reward, the Whistleblower must provide the Government with information it does not already have and could not otherwise obtain from any other publicly available source to the Government. Now we realize that corruption is not new to Nigeria for a large part of the money recovered before this has been linked back to Saudi kickbacks to groups like those who use that cash to protect influence of the Saudi oil industry. Since our materialistic human nature is open to these types of bribes, and we know that our southern border open to human smuggling of illegals and gangs, why doesn’t our government concentrate on the flow of DRUG CASH leaving the USA ? After all it is a two-way street, a street that is allowed to be travelled on by government, and just like a funnel concentrate our efforts on the flow of cash to find “the heart of the matter”.
Our government told us that "new money" printed would have safeguards against counterfeiting by the use of magnetic strips ... and we still can't find Trillions of dollars moving by the billions?
Why is that? Because the cash is there … moving by way of transport vehicles and ships heading back into Mexico. The cash involves Trillions of dollars every year, moving freely, except for an occasional bust of drugs, and a little comparative cash hoard. Now since we know nothing is free … and a drug cartel does not rely on “bank transfers”, isn’t it time for our government to “follow the money” to the source of our drug habit … perpetuated by unending government spending … to solve a problem that government seemingly created in the first place … buy NOT STOPPING this crime to humanity.
