I often wonder how much of the money is illegal money laundering. Obviously those people don't want to lose money but if it is a way to "cleanse" the money maybe they do.

I won't go into details but there was a place near where I lived years ago where it just didn't seem possible for it to make money. Huge crowds on Friday/Sat nights but largely empty the rest of the time (and it could seat 800 for dinner!) and the real estate (rent) was $$$.

Ended up it was being used by illegal money/tax evasion and some people were arrested. I think that happens in more places than many of us more honest people realize.

What is that saying, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me?
