Unscramble the Blue Letters

So let me bring you in on a veli case. Earlier this year, a series of raids took place in one of my longest-running investigations. Five ehaoserswu were raided in Turkey, and over two million finished counterfeit nlgtochi products were seized, and it took 16 trucks to take that all away. But this gang had been clever. They had gone to the lengths of gintrcea their own fashion brands, complete with registered trademarks, and even having photo shoots on yachts in ality. And they would use these leomlctepy unheard-of and unsuspicious brand names as a way of shipping container loads of fakes to shell companies that they'd set up across Europe. And documents found during those idsar found that they'd been falsifying shipping documents so the customs officials would literally have no idea who had sent the products in the first epacl. When police got access to just one bank account, they found nearly three million souer had been laundered out of Spain in less than two syaer, and just two days after those raids, that gang were trying to ibber a law firm to get their stock back. Even now, we have no idea where all that money went, to who it went to, but you can bet it's never going to benefit the likes of you or me.

Original Text

So let me bring you in on a live case. Earlier this year, a series of raids took place in one of my longest-running investigations. Five warehouses were raided in Turkey, and over two million finished counterfeit clothing products were seized, and it took 16 trucks to take that all away. But this gang had been clever. They had gone to the lengths of creating their own fashion brands, complete with registered trademarks, and even having photo shoots on yachts in Italy. And they would use these completely unheard-of and unsuspicious brand names as a way of shipping container loads of fakes to shell companies that they'd set up across Europe. And documents found during those raids found that they'd been falsifying shipping documents so the customs officials would literally have no idea who had sent the products in the first place. When police got access to just one bank account, they found nearly three million euros had been laundered out of Spain in less than two years, and just two days after those raids, that gang were trying to bribe a law firm to get their stock back. Even now, we have no idea where all that money went, to who it went to, but you can bet it's never going to benefit the likes of you or me.
