It's like a meal menu, but instead of pricing, it's a price tag for illegal matters. These are bribes that have exposed the international environment Bloomberg and that, according to the publication, it was popularized in Venezuela through WhatsApp.
There it offers clean penalty records for $ 7,000, apostille papers for the same 100 currencies, and even passports for $ 750.

The article suggests that due to the great humanitarian crisis in the country Nicolás Maduro, state officials stomach to even fix fixed prices for procedures, all charged in foreign currency.
