In November 2010 while Nicholas Newman was going over his finances at the office, he noticed a check stub to N.A. Partnership that he didn't write and realized that its address was Jack Abbott's house. Nick deduced that NA Partnership was Newman Abbott due to the address. He asked Victor Newman what he and Jack were up to. Victor and Jack were conspiring by investing in the Newman Fund as the N.A. Partnership along with some other friends of Jack’s intending to pool their money and destabilize the fund then shorting the shares when Skye Lockhart Newman and Adam Newman would be forced to sell.
