round trip transaction
 n.— «According to prosecutors, Stockman lied to banks about the firm’s financial condition, inducing them to loan the company money it couldn’t repay. He engaged in “round trip” transactions that involved masking loans—which were supposed to be repaid—as income. He exaggerated the manufacturer’s prospects, knowing his claims were untrue, which led people to buy company securities that quickly became worthless.» —“David Stockman’s Second Act” by Michael Kinsley Time Apr. 5, 2007.
