Salaamun Alaykum

The money you would receive for such a transaction would be halal for you as you have no knowledge as to whether that transaction is haraam or not.
There is also no need for you to investigate as to what the transaction is and what is being bought and sold.
However, common sense does tell us that if you are suspicious of such dealings and that it could potentially place you in trouble later on e.g by law or by being amongst such individuals, then it’s better to avoid such dealings altogether for fear of what could transpire.
