Banks As Laundromats

An interesting post doing the rounds on social media.

Amazing how this person still expects change.

“Hi, I am working in a leading national bank and I am writing this with great disappointment. Corrupt bank official are changing black money into white.

Modus Operandi:- Government allow to change 4000/- rs per person per day.

1. Big corporate houses, factories are using i.d. of their employees (photocopy can be easily obtained by H.R files of employees) ,giving these I.Ds in bulk to branch managers and corrupt branch managers are changing 4000/- RS per ID of black money into white each day. For example ID of 500 persons can convert 20,00,000 rs per day per branch into new currency. Multiply it to number of branches doing this and you will be surprised how much black money can be converted to new currency in a single day.

2. Agents contacting telecom houses, mobile shops for getting photocopy of IDs in bulk and using them to convert black money into white with the help of banks.

3. Branch managers are taking photocopy of IDs from saving account of peoples and using thousands of these IDs to covert 4000/- rs per ID into new currency.

This is going on very large scale. Crores of black money is converting into white every hour. Instead of giving new currency to public, banks are giving it to black money hoarders. Because of this, even after issuing thousands of crores of 2000 notes by RBI, public still waiting to get new currency.

Kindly share it to as many peoples and platforms as you can so that this malpractice comes into government knowledge and this can be stop immediately and this great step of currency change don’t go into vain. share it to PMO and other official government pages.”

wealthymattersWholesale laundering happens when seasoned chartered accountants and money market brokers bring together two kinds of people: one, with excess, unexplained cash and the other having a shortage of it.The latter  are small firms whose books show large `cash on hand’ but actually hold very little physical cash.These are companies which have spent their earnings and fund withdrawals from banks for personal uses, bribes, and commissions ­ expenses that are not reflected in their books of accounts.Though their books show `cash in hand’ they don’t really have the cash as it has been used in activities that is difficult to account for.They are the perfect match for people and businesses who are looking for avenues to salvage their hidden bills of  Rs500 and Rs1,000 these days. If the stakes are high, a few companies with sizeable ‘cash on hand’ in their balance-sheets, may even be acquired by those with large undeclared funds.Such deals would go on till December 31, ­ the dead line for exchanging and depositing Rs500 and Rs1,000 notes with banks.

Sinister Gold Import Theory
