Chapter 1531 - Mo Xicheng Reinstated (4)
After signing the agreement yesterday, Mo Xicheng had promised to transfer at least 20 percent of the funds to the filming crew’s account.
He had even spoken with the finance department before leaving work, so how could it be possible that they had not received the money?
Upon hearing this, Mo Xicheng was taken aback and asked after a short pause, “Director Wang, are you talking about the full sum? If you’re wondering about the full sum, it may take the company a few days to complete the transaction. We agreed yesterday that 20 percent—”
“I haven’t received even a single cent, not to mention 20 percent! The filming crew is about to start filming. Without any funds, how do you expect us to operate? Everything is in place and we’re just waiting for the funds to begin.”
He had not received the 20 percent?
Mo Xicheng narrowed his eyes and stared ahead.
Frowning, he said after a while, “Director Wang, give me a few minutes. I’ll call the office to ask.”
After he hung up, Mo Xicheng headed out.
At the same time, he dialed the office. He got into the car and put on his bluetooth earpiece. While he waited for the call to connect, he started driving.
Very quickly, the call connected. “Hello, this is Mo Xicheng. Get me the finance department.”
“Sure, CEO Mo.”
The call was directed to the finance department. The finance department manager picked up the call and greeted him respectfully, “CEO Mo.”
“Hello. Yesterday I asked for part of the investment funds to be transferred to the filming crew, has it not been done?”
The finance department manager replied immediately, “I sent the order yesterday. The rest is handled by the staff, so I’ll have to check with them.”
Mo Xicheng was not happy to hear this excuse. He continued, “You’ve asked your staff to handle such a large sum, yet you do not keep track of it or monitor its movements?”
The finance department Manager explained, “It’s precisely because it’s a big sum that the transfer might take longer, this is very normal. Even if the transfer was made last night, you still have to wait a while before you see it in your bank account.”
Mo Xicheng gave an icy smile and asked, “Are you sure the money has been transferred?”
“CEO Mo, I called the bank and they confirmed it. Of course I’m sure.”
Mo Xicheng narrowed his eyes.
Money transfers between companies often got delayed, that was for sure.
But his instinct told him that things weren’t that simple.
Before they signed the agreement, they had been at Director Wang’s mercy and had had to practically beg him for the collaboration. But after signing the agreement and the investment amount had been confirmed, the two parties’ positions had switched.
Yesterday, Mo Zhi had embarrassed himself in front of Director Wang’s representative. It was unlikely that he would just keep quiet and allow himself to be taken advantage of.
At this thought, Mo Xicheng narrowed his eyes and said, “Give me the bank’s number, I’ll call them myself.”
This request stunned the finance department manager, almost causing him to choke at once. “Erm, CEO Mo, I don’t think there’s a need for that.”
Upon hearing this, Mo Xicheng’s suspicion that there was something fishy going on grew.
He said, “Could it be that you haven’t transferred the funds at all?!”
The finance department manager said after a pause, “CEO Mo, I really did call—”
“Manager Liu,” although Mo Xicheng spoke unhurriedly and stoically, that made him feel exceptionally uncomfortable. The manager’s surname was Liu, hence Mo Xicheng had addressed him formally, making things rather cold and distant between them. The man shuddered as Mo Xicheng continued, “Did you know that the first day I came to work I locked up the HR manager in the office for a few hours?”
