In the second season too, we expect some leading figures, either in interviews or in video clippings, to appear.
What Would Be The Plot Of Dirty Money Season 2?
In a world where businesses often participate in unethical and unorthodox corruption, once it could almost be said that Dirty Money is a show which, because of its insightful nature and scandalous insights into the scandals of big corruption, is absolutely necessary. Every show episode focuses on one case and introduces it to its viewers in detail.
The first episode in the first season is about the extremely high-profile Volkswagen emissions scandal or the Dieselgate scandal which hit the US and Europe in addition to affecting many other parts of the world. For those who are ignorant, the case was found in September 2015, when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that many U.S. VW cars were equipped with software known as the “Defeat Device.” On the track, however, things were different, and VW cars have been found to emit more emissions than allowed by law. Upon discovery of the scandal, VW admitted that 11 million of its cars around the globe have a so-called “defeat device.” Since then, much has plummeted, and Volkswagen in just the US has had to pay fines approaching $10 billion.
The second episode of the show deals broadly with unsecured payday loans in the US, focusing in particular on former racers Scott Tucker, who made a fortune through the illegal granting of these loans to as many as 4.5 million Americans. After a long-drawn cat-and-mouse game, Tucker was finally arrested in February 2016 and is now in prison for 16 years and 8 months.
The third episode deals with the recent rise and decline of Valeant Pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical companies that have since changed its name to Bausch Health to try and shake the consequences of the scandal. For the uncertain, Valeant Pharmaceuticals has taken part in several fights about drug price rises in 2015, which have caused its stock to grow. The firm could not reap the benefits of its fraudulent activity though, and a US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation caused the shares to fall by over 90%, whereas the debt reached $30 billion.
The fourth episode also addresses a controversial problem and examines the complexities of HSBC’s money trafficking operations for groups such as the Sinaloan Cartel (remember’ Narcos: Mexico’), Hezbollah and others. If you are curious about the scale of such activities, know that the bank had laundered hundreds of millions of dollars worth of money for decades.
The fifth episode of the show deals with a less heartened but massive subject, the Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist. This deals with the theft of nearly $20 million of 10 thousand barrels of maple syrup, from the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (FPAQ), an organization responsible for 77 percent of the global supply of maple syrup in 2011. Around 2011 and 2012, the Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist was carried for several months and is considered the biggest in the history of Canada.
The final episode of the first season was an interesting one, explaining how US President Donald Trump developed his reputation and real estate empire with a continuous media campaign.
