But when he asked the CEO about the account labelled “miscellaneous”, an account which appeared to have $8,545,736.00 (at least on paper) about that account, specifically the fact that there was no record of whether that was the company’s money or a client’s money the company was holding in escrow, the CEO just said, “There’s no need for you to trouble yourself with that, Phil”…and Phil’s had the sense that he’s been being FOLLOWED everywhere ever since mentioning the miscellaneous account to the CEO.
