The last time i saw something like this was in NARCOS. The series that featured the life and death of Pablo Escobar.
A new photo released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office shows the $20 million that authorities found hidden in a mattress in a Westborough apartment. .
The cash was inside a box spring and police say it is connected to a pyramid scheme involving TelexFree, a Marlborough-based company that purportedly sold VOIP telephone service. .
It was found earlier this month by investigators who had tailed a Brazilian man from New York. That man, Cleber Rene Rizerio Rocha, 28, was charged with conspiring to commit money laundering. .
TelexFree had few customers and made most of its revenue from people buying into the company with a promise of payouts for posting online ads for it, prosecutors have said. .
They were paid with money from new recruits, often friends and family of earlier investors. Almost 1 million people worldwide were swindled out of nearly $1.8 billion.
