Chapter 120: Dogfight (Part one)
With just one poke, Xu Cheng fished out the background of the freight company boss.
Now, he was no longer in a hurry, and it was time for Chang Qing to get anxious.
Inside the villa, Chang Qing picked up the phone he smashed, took out the sim card, and put it in a new phone. Not long after, another call came in.
Seeing this number, Chang Qing’s tone immediately changed.
A hoarse voice came from the other end of the phone. “What’s happening? You know that the South Asian drug lord and the business in the Middle East are our big clients? You actually messed up both?”
“Mr. Hetian, I’m very sorry. I didn’t expect the police to have been so prepared and strictly deployed. When we realized what they were doing, they already began intercepting and arresting our people. This time, I admit that it was my mistake, and I need to correct this mistake. I need you to trust me again on this and first offset the losses of the two customers. In the future, West Gate’s willing to repay with interest.”
“I don’t need you to remind me of this. Let me ask you, the total of 1.5 billion dollars that was prepared for the two clients, where’s it now after you took it from me?”
Chang Qing slowly said, “It has all been seized, we didn’t even have time to withdr…”
“Okay, you don’t have to explain to me, you can take care of the 1.5 billion hole yourself. I can’t help you.” The other end of the call immediately flipped.
Chang Qing got nervous. “Mr. Hetian, please give us another chance. You should know how much money our casino has laundered for you over the years. We are in the same boat, and isn’t it a bit insincere to burn the bridge just for 1.5 billion dollars?”
“Without your West Gate’s casinos, there are plenty of others that are willing to cooperate with me. Don’t forget, for every transaction, you get a 5% commission, and now something happened during your process, and you are demanding for us to clean up after you?” the other end sneered.
Chang Qing also became furious. “Then please, Mr. Hetian, you should also know that the details of every transaction are recorded in our books, and if these books appear in the hands of Huaxia’s police, then I don’t know if you can safely leave the country with the money you are storing in the underground money house. Besides, I also know that your underground money house had been absorbing Huaxia’s currency to cause problems in the domestic cash flow. These are all actions suspicious of shorting Huaxia’s economy. You think that if we expose these severe problems, you people can still safely leave the country?”
“You! Are you threatening us?”
Not only was the Mr. Hetian who was on the other end of the phone furious, even Xu Cheng who was eavesdropping was also shocked. He didn’t expect the case to escalate this quickly behind the scenes. Sniping and short-selling yuan to cause an economic crisis in Huaxia, this Hetian guy was from Wei Nation?
Inside the villa, Chang Qing was still confronting Hetian over the phone. “No, I just think that we still have value for you, and I’m a little disappointed that you would burn the bridge for just 1.5 billion dollars. You must know, the value of our 5 casinos alone is already more than 5 billion dollars. Please consider it, Mr. Hetian, I don’t think our partnership should be this fragile. I promise that this is really just an accident.”
Since Chang Qing already showed his hand, Mr. Hetian seemed to have no choice but to admit fate. True, if he completely pissed off West Gate, then all the evidence of money-laundering would surface and attract the nation’s attention, and Hetian’s underground money house would no longer be able to continue lurking inside Huaxia. As the person in charge of the underground money house, Hetian could not afford the consequences.
