Posts Tagged ‘receiving of stolen goods’
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!
