The Rich Man's Life - Chapter 37
Chapter 37 – Backstabbing
October 6th, morning
Ma Dong and Chen Yibin met again, but this time Ma Dong appeared prepared and confident.
Listening to the content recorded in the smart pen, and then looking at the photos on the phone, where Wei Xiong and Wang Renfu were sitting in the clubhouse, each holding a girl in revealing clothes, Chen Yibin’s eyelids twitched and he commented jokingly: “Mr.Ma, if you open a private detective agency, you will definitely get rich…”
He was really shocked. It had only been two days and Ma Dong actually got a solid proof against Wei Xiong! There were photos and a recording, and that too a photo in the private room of the clubhouse!
‘How much strength and means are needed to achieve this?’ Chen Yibin asked himself but he couldn’t figure it out.
“It seems that my cognition and judgment of Mr.Ma’s strength and background has seriously deviated!”
Chen Yibin secretly tried to figure out Ma Dong’s background, but didn’t know that these were actually pure coincidences. Smart people tend to think too much…
Ma Dong just smiled, but didn’t explain much, and said: “Mr.Chen, I am trusting you with this evidence, now it is up to you to wash my name white!”
Chen Yibin recovered, patted his chest and promised: “Don’t worry, Mr.Ma, this evidence is as solid as a mountain, if I can’t help you clear your name after this, then I don’t deserve my position!”
With Chen Yibin’s guarantee and coupled with Zhang Mengmeng’s presence, Ma Dong was relieved, he patted his butt and left…
Chen Yibin sat in the office looking at the evidence Ma Dong left behind in a daze. It wasn’t about exposing the Red Eight or NetEase, but about how to get the most out of it.
After thinking about it for a long time, he called the headquarters to explain Ma Dong’s whole story and the evidence in his own hands. In addition, he added: “The biggest rival of our Tencent News in Huizhou is NetEase. They have reached exclusive agreements with many organizations. The cooperation agreement has resulted in a lot of important news that we cannot get our hands on first. I think this is a good opportunity to suppress them. In addition, taking advantage of this opportunity, it would be better if the headquarters could contact the sports lottery center…”
The headquarters naturally strongly supported Chen Yibin’s ideas. His peers were his enemies, and they were never soft when they got a chance to suppress each other. NetEase was never soft when it engaged with Tencent. To say that Tencent was nearly ten times the size of NetEase, but that doesn’t mean that Tencent News was better than NetEase.
Because Tencent’s core was a real-time chat software, it was currently vigorously expanding into games. As for the portal website, it could only be regarded as ‘developing’…
But NetEase was different. Its core was the news portal. It’s understandable that Tencent News was dangling…
“I seem to have heard that NetEase is also exploring the gaming industry. It seems that more and more people in the headquarters would be unhappy with NetEase after that!”
It was also a lot easier for Chen Yibin to think from there. That is to say he was suppressed by Wei Xiong in Huizhou, also very miserable, this time it was the other way around and he must give his best shot!
He called Zhang Mengmeng and an editor, Chen Yibin arranged the task, “Xiao Zhang has a better understanding of the ins and outs of this matter, Xiao Liu, when you write a manuscript, ask Xiao Zhang about the details. There are two standards you have to grasp. NetEase News violation of the agreement with the Sports Lottery Center, entrapment of interviewees, manipulation of news to fool the majority of netizens, we must find ways to weaken its brand influence!
As for the Red Eight Committee, focus on Wang Renfu, and give a detailed analysis of his attitude regarding retaliation…”
Editor Xiao Liu took the lead.
Her full name was Liu Min, and she wasn’t too old. While conceiving the manuscript, she said enviously: “I think, not only Ma Dong is lucky, but your luck isn’t worse than him! If you want money, he’s got money, his education and work qualifications are so great, and his looks are decent…”
Seeing Liu Min’s jealousy, Zhang Mengmeng felt a sense of achievement in her heart, but then felt nervous again.
Ma Dong’s conditions were so good, and now his popularity was increasing, it could be estimated that there would be a group of women like Liu Min who want a piece of Ma Dong…
Thinking of this, Zhang Mengmeng felt irritated,
At the same time, she hated Wei Xiong even more!
Even if he dug a hole for himself, he has already exposed Ma Dong, and his good life has almost been ruined by him!
At 12 in noon, NetEase News once again reported a piece of news about Ma Dong.
“Two Hundred million prize winner has an unbalanced mentality, despises leaders and bully colleagues!”
“Ma Dong became extravagant after he suddenly became rich!”
On this November holiday when there were no major national events and no star derailments, Ma Dong’s news was the most lively. This news immediately attracted a large number of people who had no money to travel.
“Pang Hailiang, Vice President of CCB Binhu Sub-branch: Since Ma Dong won the prize, he has violated many tasks assigned by the sub-branch. I kindly reminded him but he gave me no face! I know he isn’t short of money, but the task needs to be completed. It affects the income of other employees in the marketing department! As a department leader, I think it is very irresponsible of him to do so!”
Pang Hailiang was heartbroken. He said all of this like a leader who was concerned about the country and the people. He also provoked the feuds between Ma Dong and the account manager, his heart was very vicious!
“Account manager Wang Quanquan: Ma Dong always wanted to see me unhappy, and when he became the deputy director, he began to target me and even deducted 1,500 yuan from my salary. A month could be passed with this much money! That’s not even the end, he also threatened to kick me out of the marketing department!”
Wang Quanquan said miserably, crying and complaining of Ma Dong’s harassments…
However, netizens were more concerned about another thing, “The Bank Employee’s salary is just 1,500 yuan a month? It really is a disadvantaged group! How about we change jobs, we can move bricks on the construction site and earn 4000 a month!”
“We can pass a month in 2500 yuan…”
“A rich man who loses 100 million by jerking off everyday passes by…” [TLN: He isn’t talking about money ¬‿¬ ]
“According to an insider, Ma Dong bought a luxury car at a Mercedes-Benz 4S store scamming a rich second-generation. For more details, please head to the video through the following link:…”
“Ma Dong brought his rumored girlfriend on a shopping spree at the Yintai luxury store with such extravagance, photos provided by enthusiastic netizens… Various signs indicate that Ma Dong has completely lost his mentality after he became rich, and he has spent more than three years worth of a common man’s salary. The proof shows it all!”
The constant exposure of negative news made Ma Dong’s reputation worse, and this time NetEase’s serial attacks made his reputation even worse!
Fighting wealth, squandering, domineering, and fighting against dissidents have become Ma Dong’s personal labels. Cursing on the Internet was one-sided, and all the odds were against him…
When Ma Dong saw the news, he was having dinner with Jin Xin, Xu Anhui and Xia Yong, “This f*cking dog!”
Ma Dong almost vomited blood. He thought he could be at peace after he took the evidence, but he never expected Wei Xiong to trouble him again!
What was even more damning was that Pang Hailiang and Wang Quanquan actually helped an outsider, backstabbing him!
At this moment, he only had one thought in his mind, ‘I must kill these dogs!’
Jin Xin and several people were outraged when they saw the news. They were still discussing how to acquire DXN insurance company and how to make a fortune, but due to the disturbance, the mood was ruined …
Xia Yong smashed his wine glass and grinded his teeth and made a hanging gesture, “Brother Dong, they are going overboard! How about finding someone…”
Although Ma Dong drank a few glasses of wine, he was still sober, he ignored Xia Yong’s gibberish talk, “Don’t mind these trivial matters, they are just clowns, nothing to be concerned about.”
Although he said that he didn’t care, he already hated Pang Hailiang to his very core…
“These are all trivial matters. No matter how many times they bounce on the Internet, it won’t matter. Let’s continue to discuss the issue of acquiring DXN Insurance…”
Just when Ma Dong thought that Pang Hailiang and others wouldn’t be able to create any big waves for the time being, the senior leaders of the Binhu branch held an emergency meeting.
Li Shengnan, president, two vice presidents, one assistant to the president, and one labor union chairman.
Pang Hailiang smiled at Li Shengnan and said: “President Li, Ma Dong’s affairs have made a huge uproar in the past few days, and it has even alarmed the head office. The branch is currently under great pressure. Our branch can’t do anything! When we go to work, the branch leader blames us. We can’t let it pass just like that…”
Li Shengnan glared at Pang Hailiang with sharp eyes, “Ma Dong is also a member of the branch. Even if President Pang has a conflict with him, it is an internal matter. If you attack him directly through the media, shouldn’t you give the whole bank an explanation? Go and look at what people in the industry are saying about our Binhu branch!”
Pang Hailiang pretended to shrug his shoulders helplessly, “Several reporters blocked my door, and I couldn’t say stuff that goes against my conscience, now can I? I think we should discuss how Ma Dong should be dealt with, instead of being entangled with other useless things…”
The meeting lasted for more than half an hour, and Pang Hailiang insisted on taking off Ma Dong’s position directly. Li Shengnan naturally disagreed. The deputy director who had just been promoted was going to be taken down. What face would she have left? !
In the end, the trade union chairman Zhang Hongjun reconciled, “President Li, what do you think about this? Ma Dong will keep his position for now, but won’t take charge of the work for the time being. It can be considered as a shelter, then after a while when the fuss is over, we can talk about it, what shall you say?”
Seeing other people nodding in agreement, Li Shengnan felt frustrated for a while, but there was nothing she could do. Without the support of these people, she wouldn’t make a decision on her own, and she would not be able to hold her position if the branch leader blamed her…
In the end, the two parties reached a consensus, and Ma Dong was kept under inspection, which was an explanation to the branch.
Pang Hailiang smiled triumphantly when he watched Li Shengnan walk out of the meeting room angrily, but the other people were a bit embarrassed, it wasn’t easy for them to be caught in the middle!
Ma Dong received a call from Zhang Hongjun at 5 o’clock in the afternoon. He had just discussed the acquisition with Jin Xin. [TLN: Zhang Hongjun = the trade union chairman of the bank]
Seeing that Ma Dong’s expression was a bit different, Jin Xin asked strangely, “Dongzi, what happened again?”
Ma Dong gritted his teeth, with blue veins on his forehead throbbing violently, he said angrily: “I was overshadowed by Pang Hailiang! This grandson made me stay for inspection, this isn’t going to be easy…”
After speaking, he looked at Xia Yong and said, “When you’ll participate in the marketing department recruitment process, I’ll say hello to you in advance.”
Xia Yong nodded, he could not shrink back this time…
Ma Dong was very passive now. Without the bank platform, he was just an ordinary person with more than one billion in his hand. Many ideas would be difficult to realize. At this time, he felt a kind of urgency.
However, looking for Li Shengnan now would have no effect. First, he had to wash his name…
When he came to the Tencent News Huizhou branch again, Chen Yibin saw Ma Dong, smiled and enquired, “Mr.Ma, what’s the hatred between you and Wei Xiong? Why does he keep biting you?”
Ma Dong had a headache. He didn’t expect that his threat would lead to so many things. He didn’t know whether Wei Xiong’s eyes were sharp or he was unlucky. He bought a car and went shopping and was secretly photographed…
“Mr. Chen, let’s not talk about it. When will you release the news? I am under a lot of pressure now. If this continues, I won’t be able to keep my job in the bank…”
Chen Yibin was startled, and said in disbelief, “No way, is it that serious?”
Ma Dong nodded gloomily, “The relationship in the line inside is much complicated…”
Chen Yibin thought about the news that broke out at noon, and he truly felt that fighting is indispensable no matter the place!
