Blind Item #11

This suddenly hot again music producer/record label exec/owner stole from every single act he ever produced. He would come up with ridiculous charges and assign each expense a random 9 number code. Just the code and a charge. If an artist complained he would give them a hundred page book filled with random codes in no particular order. They would never be able to find the random codes in the 100 page book and give up.

They should've hired someone with OCD to look them up. Hell, I would've done it for free just because it would bug me so much not knowing what they stood for.

Something like this should allow for computer searches on it: https://fossbytes.com/use-google-drive-convert-images-text-ocr/

That is a free option, a better option that is more accurate may cost a few dollars but not a lot.

A very good friend and one of LA's top 20 entertainment lawyers for over 20 years has made his career defending artists from labels. He literally wrote the book on the music business industry. Big love for Neville.
