On May 30, a cash bonanza hit a resident, surnamed Liu, when he was withdrawing money from a Huaxia Bank’s ATM in Wuhan city, Hubei Province. He refused to take it however.
The malfunctioning machine was dishing out twice the amount of cash Liu requested, stunning himself and reporters who arrived at the spot after receiving the news.
Liu said, he has reported the case to the local police, as well as the bank. He was afraid of getting troubled for such an unexpected windfall.
He showed he got 2,800 yuan, but his account was debited by just 1,400 yuan.
In fact, 10 days ago this “ultimate buy one, get one free sale” deal occurred at a faulty ATM machine in an affluent village in the UK. too, but the bank said the mistake was theirs and customers could keep the unexpected windfall after a two-hour misdispensing of free money to around 200 villagers.
In China however you will face jail sentences.
Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.
