Sean Edmonds is a college graduate and frustrated that he is saddled with student loan debt, and unable to find a high-paying job. Ever resourceful, he sees an opportunity to free himself from debt and achieve the American dream in an unorthodox way. When the house that he is living in goes into foreclosure, he meets with his friend, Ray Knight, a local drug dealer. The two strike up a bargain: Edmonds wants to get out of debt and Knight wants to "go legit." Knight gives Edmonds the money to buy the house from the bank. Edmonds then rents rooms at the property out at high prices, using the proceeds not only to pay back Knight, but purchase a number of other properties as well.

Knight uses Edmonds' real estate interests as a means of laundering drug money and hired thugs ... Written by Anonymous
