You get $4.6 Million dollars in your account that's deposited by the bank due to some technical glitch.What would you do then? Party? Buy that car you always wanted? I'll tell you what you got to do- NOTHING. Yup, that's right, do not spend that money. Because clearly it isn't yours and just because you got it in your account doesn't mean you won it. The bank will make you pay if you do end up spending it. And suffer horribly like this girl.
Meet Christine Jiaxin Lee.
Christine Jiaxin Lee is a 21-year-old student from Malaysia who after receiving a $4.6 Million deposit into her account by mistake from the bank, went on a rather extravagant spending spree and is ow facing trial for the same.
Christine Jiaxin Lee has been currently placed under arrest by the immigration office for violating her student visa and for hiding the money received from the bank.
Christine transferred around $5000 per day to numerous bank accounts across Australia. As per sources,it is said that over the ninth month time frame, $33,000 per week was sent to bank accounts with no connection to Westpac bank(the bank that transferred the money into Ms.Lee's account in the first place due to a processing error).
The amount transferred were minimal enough to not raise any alarms with the bank officials, enabling Ms. Lee to carry out her operation for so long.
You should see what she spent the money on...
Ms. Lee is a chemical engineering student who in addition to making the cash transfers went on to buy numerous luxurious products like designer handbags. Ms. Lee also lived in a luxury apartment in Sydney's inner west overlooking the harbor, at a cost of more than $3000 per month.
