How to make millions in Serbia
Latest example of bullshit and corruption that goes around here.

The state issues a legal tender for some services that are not important right now.

Several companies answer but there are only two important players, company A and company B , few other companies are there only to give appearance of legality, their offers are invalid.

Company A gives an offer of 30 mill. euros ( which is by all accounts a realistic offer )

Company B makes an overpriced offer of 40 mill. euros.

Company A gets the job.

All is fine so far. But...

Very soon after the contracts have been signed, Company A pulls from the job, and as a consequence pays 1 mill. in penalties, loses their guarantee they had to deposit.

Instead of making another tender ,quietly and "due to time issues" , the state gives the contract to company B , of course for the 40 mill. as per their offer.

Well, what can you do, right?

And then comes the funny part. Company B "hires" company A to do the actual job , but this time for 35 million.
Company A recovers the million they lost and finish the job , getting payed 34 mill. for a 30 mill job, and company B pockets the 5 mill. difference without lifting a finger. Minus of course the politicians cut.

All is well...

Corruption is so deep routed here, it became standard business practice.
And not just business, knowing a right guy is everything.

God damn that's genius.

That's not corruption though. That's working a failed system.
Corruption is things like bribes and kickbacks.

Seriously? Do you think that scam was pulled off without greasing a few government officials?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Crime..yes, organized ...not so much. We Serbs don't organize that well Big Grin

But seriously , most of the drugs (same goes for organs ) that goes trough Serbia to western Europe is controlled by Albanian mafia from Kosovo, which is not Serbia any more but they use Serbian passports so they are often characterized as "coming from Serbia" . Of course our drug lords work with them to some extent , but mostly our guys work with south americans. Some huge busts were made in last few years. We are talking about tons of cocaine. American DEA involved.

Mostly Serbians will be high level thiefs like the infamous
Pink Panther

Quote:According to a report by NPR's Christopher Worth, the group has stolen about half a billion dollars over roughly 500 robberies.
Shocking

But Belgrade is a really safe city now. Only 19 murders in Belgrade in 2012.
None of them random victims. Mobsters killing each other and few family "disputes".
