When the CEO of a company gets arrested for embezzlement, he makes a frantic phone call to his lawyer. The lawyer meets him in the police station.
“Listen,” the CEO says, “I’ve got at least two million stashed in a Caymans account. Can you get me out of this?”
“Believe me,” the lawyer says, “there is no way you’re going to prison with that kind of money.”
True to his word, the lawyer made sure that ten months later, the CEO went to prison flat broke.
