As old as the hills

Not the 35,000 years old Ramtha, but the desire of humans to evade taxes--and provide a useful product to the public (of Romania, this time);
A Romanian couple accused in a plot to dodge $73 million in taxes have been arrested after joining followers of a fringe religious movement in Yelm.
Radu Nemes and his wife Diana are accused of conspiring with a high-ranking Romanian tax official to dodge millions in fuel taxes. Indicted in their native country, the pair were  arrested in Washington earlier this week and currently face extradition proceedings.
According to court papers, the Nemes wound up in Yelm, where they’d joined Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, a religious movement founded by J.Z. Knight. Knight claims to channel a 35,000-year-old warrior spirit from a mythical continent; she established the Yelm “school” in 1988.
What was the nefarious couple doing?
Radu Nemes, 39, is alleged to have worked with others to illegally import and sell nearly 1 million tons of diesel fuel, using a series of shell companies. Investigators contend Nemes dodged $53 million Euros in taxes (approximately $73.3 million) by importing the fuel for use in manufacturing, then selling it directly to consumers. 
So those consumers could heat their homes. Cutting out the middleman; their government.
