In a bizarre news, a Chinese man withdrew Rs. 5.8 crores only to ask the bank employees to count every bill (note) after he was asked to put mask on. The man was allegedly disgruntled and annoyed at the staff’s conduct towards him at the bank. Further, the man wasn’t done and claimed that he would come the next day to withdraw more sum as the bank’s withdrawal limit was reached. The man goes by the name Sunwear on Weibo (a state-run app) and withdrew ¥5 million. Further, the pictures of the man putting multiple suitcases loaded with cash in his Rolls Royce have gone viral.

The Facts of the Matter

Employees of the Bank of Shanghai were having a normal day when a man walked into the Hongmei Road branch of the bank situation in Shanghai. The man was not wearing a mask, and hence, the man was asked by the employees to put the mask on as it’s the COVID-19 protocol.

If we put ourselves in the shoes of the Chinese man, we would probably put the mask on. But the man truly made a mountain of the mow hill and resorted to the pettiest of acts. Infuriated at the “bad conduct” of the employees, he ordered the maximum amount he could take, to be withdrawn.

Bank Employees Asked to Count ¥5 Million

Soon, the bank officials piled up heaps of bills and withdrew the maximum limit (¥5 million). If you think that’s where his anger subsided, you’re unfortunately wrong. The man then went on to order the bank employees, to count every single bill. This truly baffled the employees as they started on with their mission of counting every bill that the ¥5 million was comprised of.

The employee goes on by the name Sunwear on Chinese social media app Weibo. On the app, he gave an account of the incident and claimed that due to the bad behaviour of the staff, he wanted to withdraw the money and deposit in other banks.

Bank Issues Curt Statement

Meanwhile, when the bank staff was contacted, they claimed that the man was only asked to put mask on. The bank also issued a statement which read, “The client’s (complaint suggested) he had higher expectations of financial services.”

“Will Come Back Later Till Account Not Empty”

Further, the millionaire claimed that he asked them to count the bills in case it fell short. “It was necessary to request them to count the cash in case it fell short,” he was quoted by reports saying.

And that’s not all, the man also told the bank that he would return to withdraw the same amount every day, till his account was completely depleted. As ¥5 million was the maximum amount one could withdraw in a day at the above-mentioned bank, he settled on the amount.
