Dear Madame,
I am still interested in your point of view. You may think that i must be a rather naive person who is not figuring out anything....
It does not matter. Of course i have thoughts . Money launderung is the key word. But I really want your opinion....
Kind regards Peter

Hello sir,

From the few facts you point above, this is likely to be some sort of illegal money laundering or tax evasion scheme. If you have knowledge of that and the fact that the same person/group of persons do this using different ID's, it is you duty to report it ASAP to the Office Fédéral de la Police in Bern, MROS division, specialized in fighting money laundring. Or to any police station.
