A Chinese millionaire withdrew his entire life’s savings and ordered the bank staff to count it out note by note after he got into a disagreement with them.
In the pictures that have gone viral on Chinese social media, staff can be seen giving the annoyed millionaire the maximum allowed in a day.
The man, known as ‘Sunwear’ on Chinese social media platform Weibo, withdrew 5 million yuan (Rs 5.8 crore) in banknotes from a branch of the Bank of Shanghai. The sum is the maximum amount of cash one can withdraw. The millionaire said that he plans to go back to the bank every day until he removes all his savings, with the bank staff having to count it by hand each time
He also told the staff that he will come back to withdraw the same amount – until his account was emptied.
The rich dude accused the staff of having ‘the worst service attitude’ and boasted about having a seriously large amount of cash deposited with them.He says this was because of the conduct of the staff at the bank, but they say that it’s down to the fact a security guard asked him to wear a face mask while in the branch.
Not for long, though. He added: “Because of this attitude, I can only withdraw all the money and put it in other banks.
“It was necessary to request them to count the cash in case it fell short.”
Since this particular stunt, he has managed to grow his online following to around 1.7 million people.
Still, the bank maintains that none of the staff present that day did anything wrong.
They issued a court statement that said: “The client’s (complaint suggested) he had higher expectations of financial services.”
