In Ilicit Business, four friends meet in the worst possible place, the funeral of a friend. There they start talking and one of them says that he has good information about investments, insider information, and that if they invest they can earn a lot of money.
The problem is that none of them have the money to invest, but one of them tells them not to worry, that they can get the money right away and so invest it. They do not bother to return it, as they are supposed to make lots of money.
As is often the case in these cases, the investment is ruinous, since the snooping was false. That way, friends run out of money and now have to repay what they borrowed.
The problem is that the one who asked for the money did not do it to a bank, but asked a mafioso who now wants to recover it and wants to do it right away.
