He creates a plan to hire himself as his own assistant to increase his income. Unbeknownst to Jenny, trouble ensues when she falls for this new assistant and Fred becomes his own rival. 

There is more: The company’s credit investigator, Basil Pronker, discovers banking errors in Fred’s account. Each time he tries to confront Fred, he seems to disappear. The romantic comedy unfolds as each tries to make things right.
