CA: Why do bookies' phone numbers change so frequently?
Pete: Well, for obvious reasons, we don't have a license. We wish we did. We'd love to pay tax, but unfortunately, we can't.
CA: Have you ever been raided?
CA: How often does that happen? How do they find you?

Pete: At least five times.
CA: When was the most recent time?
