Chinese Student Gets Famous in Australia After Banking Error

Chinese Student Gets Famous in Australia After Banking Error

Last week, 26-year-old Ms. Dong got a call from someone claiming to represent the Australian National Bank saying her account had just received a deposit of 200,000 AUD.At first she thought it was a scam, but later found out it was a bank system error and decided to return the money. Her story was picked up by the Australian newspaper The Advertiser, and overnight she became famous.One top voted commenter cynically remarked “Does a student who can afford to study in Australia lack this money? Over there they’re all living in villas, driving nice cars, they’re all aristocrats.”.

    “they’re all aristocrats”….Or maybe she just had the common sense(it ain’t so common) to realize running off with a bank’s money isn’t exactly a good long term strategy.
    Either way, kudos to her.
