Wouldn't that be the absolute best out?
"OMG!!! We sent the payment to the wrong place!!!!"
Doesn't work if it isn't the exact amount.
Arod's attorney sends Arod's financial people a bill and a request for wire transfer
Arod's financial people send the exact amount via wire transfer to Bosch's attorney instead (Arod had previously wired Bosch's attorney $25,000 to cover Bosch's legal fees)
Bosch's attorney returns the money to Arod's people and they pay the correct attorney
It was an elaborate bribery set up. Arod's attorney conspired by sending a fake bill. Arod's financial people paid the "wrong" person that exact amount in an attempt to bribe Bosch. Bosch refused, his attorney returned the money. The money gets sent the "right" attorney. Arod's attorney comes up with an extra $49,000+ that never get's returned to Arod.
It was a simple mistake. Arod's financial people put the most recent wire transfer info in instead of the correct attorney wire transfer info. Then they sorted it out a day or two later.
