    reading about this epidemic ICE drug i wonder who are these investors who put their money in so others buy the misery.
    Now listening to 2GB radio recently the Senior Police Officer said investors from Sydneys North Shore ?
    Obviously you would have to be a Criminal or know criminals to do this.

    I just couldnt invest in others peoples misery.
    Not to mention waiting for a knock on the door anytime.

    investors? you mean drug dealers? its a big business. high return with tough consequences. risk can be managed like any good business. there would be some people who have successfully pulled off the "bali 9" business model. On tele recently they found a lady who trafficed drugs into indonesia and escaped (bribed ;) ) to ireland. has been living there for 20 or 30 years as a free woman *with conditions
    join your local bikie club and you can "invest" in all sorts of "gear"

    I thought you were talking about buying in areas that have a big ice problem like Moree.

    Vanilla Ice made big money from it. Unfortunately he was a one hit wonder.

    We have a unit on the lower North leased to a long term tenant who was a specialist at Royal North Shore. Turned out that he was also an Ice dealer. Could not have picked it.

    Received a very nasty telephone call from the strata body stating that no one could access their units for several hours.

    All good though. Despite his arrest he vacated, cleaned up and made all payments.
