Bus/Financial / dialect??
German term or phrase: Tuenneff
Und fuer solchen "Tuenneff" schon gar nicht.

-- Ist sicher Umgangssprache, aber was heisst das?

agree  Ulrike Lieder: "junk" might be another alternative. (BTW, the German word is normally spelled Tinnef, you'll find it in both Duden and Wahrig under that spelling).
