Oh, don’t worry. I’ve got a good lawyer (actually a good law firm) and I’m not afraid to use them. I am sure that the people behind all this recent fuss will wisely decide that it is far more intelligent to leave everyone well enough alone, especially as they have severely embarassed themselves sending the police expecting to find a business and having the police find f*** all. I’m sure the tax office will have a record of the “concerned citizen” who made the report.
Oohhh, what will they try next? Tipping the police that I’ve got illegal software? Sorry, everything’s registered and legal here. Try for my motorcycle registration? Oops, don’t have one.
However, on the interesting side, apparently anyone can phone up the local police and lodge some complaint (“Bob is running an illegal business in his house”) and the police will compliantly trot over and knock on Bob’s door. Best of all, the heroes who give the police the information need not give their names. Well, a legal, registered business has nothing to worry about, nor does a person who is not running any business at all. I guess it’s just the shady characters who need to be worried, and I don’t fall into that category, so it’s no sweat for me. At least the police didn’t ask me to teach them English this time.
