Imagine you are in the biggest city you know, on the busiest street, outside the biggest bank which you notice is surrounded with cameras and not just armed, but heavily armed security guards and some restrained but excited & vicious looking dogs.
The Bank doors open, a few moments later, from the secure confines of the building, out walks a petite and cheerful person pushing in front of them a wheelbarrow full of money, out on to the street. You immediately notice the passers-by around them, become onlookers. As they begin to stare perhaps hope that some of those loose notes blow off the top for them to collect at their whim. But if you were to look down the dark alleyways and side lanes you might find some bigger threats to that person losing their funds.
This cheerful person is off to buy the property of their dreams, they have arranged to meet the Seller, to exchange funds for Title of their intended property purchase just a few blocks up the terrace of this same street.
You begin to notice some spectre like characters, seem to condensate, perhaps out of the side lanes and alleyways, but now just happen to be walking past, as they take more interest than they should.
