Last Tuesday, we were talking about the purchase of data of German tax evaders by the German government. We came across the following words:

  • tax evader = Steuerhinterzieher
  • Hehler = fence
  • Hehlerei = receiving of stolen goods, fence (marked as slang)

We also found a proverb in this context:

The fence is worse than the thief

So much for some words which fit into the current discussion in Germany!
