Chapter 93: She Wants to Do It Her Way
Ye Qingran called Lin Shu’er and asked her how she was doing.
Lin Shu’er was in a good mood and did not hide anything. She told her about the Australian woman and said happily, “Because of Dina, I am now a member of the Zephyr Society.”
Dina was the woman from Australia.
The Zephyr Society was a organization that was founded by a group of wealthy ladies.
This Zephyr Society represented the top circle of wealthy ladies in Jiang City.
The core circle of the wealthy ladies.
The society would often hold various charity parties, auctions, public welfare activities, etc.
To make it sound nice, it was for charity.
In reality, it was a place for wealthy ladies to show off their wealth.
Before this, Lin Shu’er had always wanted to enter.
However, Lin Shu’er came from an ordinary background.
Moreover, she was Ye Jun’s third wife. Also, Ye Jun’s second wife came from a powerful family and was on good terms with those wealthy ladies.
Therefore, those wealthy ladies looked down on her.
Therefore, Lin Shu’er had never truly entered the circle of wealthy ladies in Jiang City.
Because of this, Lin Shu’er had always felt inferior.
From Lin Shu’er’s circle of friends over the past few days, it was clear that she was already familiar with this group of wealthy ladies.
And all of this was because of that woman from Australia, Dina.
Ye Qingran asked, “Now, that group of ladies have accepted you.”
The corners of Lin Shu’er’s mouth curled up into a smug smile. “That’s right. The Dina family is an international aristocratic family. They know that my relationship with Dina is good, so they all came to curry favor with me. They even wanted to use me to join Dina’s Mi Foundation.”
Ye Qingran asked, “Is Dina’s Mi Foundation very difficult to get into?”
Lin Shu’er replied, “Of course it’s difficult to get into. To join the Mi Foundation, you have to first become a member. Normally, to become a member, you have to pay 10 million in advance. However, you can get double returns on this 10 million capital. After becoming a member, based on the amount of money you put into the foundation, you can be assigned into bronze, silver, gold, and top-tier VIP. Only top-tier VIPs can attend the banquet of an international aristocratic family.”
Ye Qingran asked, “So, you’ve already paid 10 million in advance and become a member?”
Lin Shu’er replied, “That’s right. I’ve already paid 10 million for this year, but in just a few days, my 10 million has already recovered and I’ve even earned another 10 million. I’m prepared to invest another 50 million in two days.”
Ye Qingran frowned. “This year? 10 million in advance, just this year?”
Lin Shu’er said, “The minimum is 10 million in advance every year. Otherwise, you’ll be kicked out of the Mi Foundation.”
Ye Qingran: “…”
What kind of foundation was this?
Was it really not a just a pyramid scheme?
Lin Shu’er said again, “Our foundation also does charity work. Half a month later, our foundation will be holding a charity auction. All the profits will be used for women-oriented public welfare activities. I’m preparing to donate the ruby jewelry I bought last year.”
Ye Qingran: “…”
She did not say anything more to Lin Shu’er.
After understanding the situation, she hung up the phone, turned on her computer, and looked up the Mi Foundation.
This Mi Foundation was not recently established. It had already been established for several years.
It was just that it had always based it’s operations abroad.
They were indeed involved in some charity work, and it was mainly for women-oriented charity work.
There was very little information regarding them on the internet, and there was nothing wrong that could be found either.
Ye Qingran felt that this foundation was not as simple as it looked.
She closed her computer and went to the study to look for Chu Yan.
In the study.
Chu Yan was having a video conference.
When he heard the knock on the door, he ended the call.
Ye Qingran did not waste time and asked him directly, “Brother, you reminded me to be careful of that Australian woman. Did you find out about something?”
“There’s some information. Take a look for yourself.”
Chu Yan pushed a folder over to Ye Qingran.
Ye Qingran opened and browsed through it. Her brows slowly furrowed.
The investors had paid 10 million in advance, and within a few days, they had gotten back 20 million.
Once the money entered the foundation, from the data, it had been transferred several times.
From time to time, some money of unknown origins would surge in.
After several transfers, the money of unknown origins were all laundered into the foundation’s money.
The foundation then kept half of the money and returned the other half to the investors.
It also enticed the investors to buy tens of millions more.
With the previous 10 million, not only could they make a return, but they could also earn another 10 million. No one could resist this temptation.
The so-called money to make money was to launder money for others.
Why did this routine feel so familiar.
At that time, the foundation behind Long Junyao’s Baoli Company had a similar routine.
It was just that the order was wrong.
Ye Qingran closed her eyes and recalled the Baoli Fund.
She keenly discovered that the Mi Fund and the Baoli Fund had several funds that were transferred in a particularly similar manner.
Even if the source of the funds had been changed, there were still some things that could not be concealed.
Ye Qingran looked at Chu Yan and smiled. “Long Junyao? That Australian woman Dina is a trap that Long Junyao set for the Ye family.”
A trace of admiration flashed across Chu Yan’s deep eyes.
He said, “From the looks of it, it’s highly possible.”
Ye Qingran said, “It’s not highly possible, but 100% . This trap was set up by Long Junyao. That Dina brought up the foundation and then brought my mother around Jiang City to collect money. When she got enough money, she would take the money and disappear on the spot. In the end, not only would the investors not be able to earn money, they would also lose their own money. “At that time, my mother, as the person closest to Dina, will definitely become the target of everyone’s denunciation.”
Not only did she have to repay all the money.
The foundation was involved in money laundering and would even face a prison sentence.
What a vicious scheme!
Even if this Long Junyao was not in Jiang City, he had no intention of letting the Ye family off.
The Ye family’s crisis was not resolved after all.
It was still trapped in the script.
Chu Yan said, “Everything is just the beginning. There’s still at least a month before Dina will disappear. You still have some time.”
Ye Qingran chuckled. “Yes.”
Fortunately, Chu Yan had warned her early.
Now, everything was still being controlled by Dina, and Lin Shu’er was just a prop.
The Ye family would definitely be forced to follow their script because of Lin Shu’er.
Chu Yan looked at her and asked in a low voice, “Do you need help?”
Ye Qingran shook her head. “I can handle such a small matter on my own.”
She had just looked at the amount of funds registered for the foundation.
The investors’ mere tens of millions should not be enough to satisfy their appetite.
The first time they paid ten million in advance, everyone would double their earnings.
They would then invest even more money in the future.
Of course, they would still expect to double their investments.
After the charity auction, with the third return, the investors would definitely not just put in a few tens of millions.
It would at least be hundreds of millions.
At that time, it would definitely be an astronomical figure.
Only then would Dina take the money and disappear.
Ye Qingran’s lips curved slightly and her eyes were filled with frost. “I want to return the favor to Long Junyao, and at the same time let him break Mu Qingxue!”
PS: Chu Yan: my future wife is too strong. What if I have no use for her?
