Chinese Woman Undergoes Plastic Surgery To Evade $3.7m Debt
A 59-year old woman from the central Chinese city of Wuhan has transformed her appearance through plastic surgery in order to avoid $3.7m of personal debts, state news agency Xinhua said.
Police officers were reported to be astonished after apprehending the woman, who fled to the south eastern city of Shenzhen after a court in Wuhan ordered her to pay off her debt.
“We were very surprised at the scene,” Xinhua quoted a policeman as saying. “She looked in her 30s and was different from the photos we had.”
The woman, identified as Zhu Najuan, also confessed to using other people’s identity cards to travel across the country by train. She financed her plastic surgery using borrowed bank cards, it was revealed.
