  2. Just because someone has a lot of cash doesn't mean they are criminals. Global governments are trying to eliminate cash and have all your transactions done electronically so they will "always" know who you are, what you bought, when you bought it, how much you paid, where you bought it and why!!!

    Wake up people, you are going back to slavery. These are their ways of controlling you. They want to take away your freedom and privacy rights. Brainwashing everyone that cash is for criminals.

    • So what's the point, Anon, is it OK to launder, steal, rob or burgle money in and out of (esp. big) countries, but just make use of the available technology and do not get caught? Am I right in thinking that this is your view? I say a thief is a thief - regardless of country, colour, economic background
