Opinion:

It’s tempting to go into the conspiracy theory mode on this one. As I say in my tweet, somebody wants to make money out of this. The question is, who?

This story is actually a good example, not unlike the previous one about the Czech Money Launderer, to illustrate how honest people pay for the criminals among us.
