In a luxury apartment in Haeundae, Busan, which was used as an office, bundles of cash were found in bundles of 50,000 won notes.
The general manager, Mr. A in his 40s, and his party lent high-interest bonds of over 5,000% per annum to 7,900 people.
It is a murderous extortion that is more than 260 times the legal maximum interest rate of 20% per annum.
When General Manager A secured a list that could not be loaned from the financial sector and distributed it to eight teams across the country, he approached small business owners and job seekers who needed urgent money.
In this way, the criminal proceeds earned over a year and six months alone amounted to KRW 14.6 billion.
Police investigations revealed that they had rented a high-end, difficult-to-access apartment to avoid police pursuits.

It was investigated that General Manager A lived a luxurious life, such as buying three high-end foreign cars and luxury bags with the proceeds of the crime.
The police arrested General A on charges of violating the Loan Business Act, and charged 45 people per day without detention and handed them over to the prosecution.
