Angry Customer Sprays Urine In Bank

Angry Customer Sprays Urine In Bank

A furious Chinese woman showed just how peed off she was when bank red tape stopped her processing a transfer request by spraying urine over their ATM machines.

Wen Fang, 38, had gone into the bank in the city of Ningbo in China’s Zhejiang Province with a request to transfer cash that had been filled in by her husband. When the bank realised that she had not done it herself as she could not read or write, they refused to accept it, sparking a furious row.

She said she had promised to transfer the cash to her son who was studying in the capital, and he needed it to pay his rent. Her husband had usually made the payments, she said, but he was ill and so she had got him to fill the form in and had then travelled into the city to finish the process.

Security guards had eventually asked the angry woman to leave, but she had returned just minutes later with a sprayer that she had apparently purchased nearby, and then filled with her own urine.

She had then gone back to the bank to make a stink by spraying the urine over the machines.

But she had not realised that there were CCTV cameras in the foyer where the ATM's were located, and after staff saw the footage she was recognised as the customer who had been in earlier, and identified by her failed transaction slip.

A bank spokesman said: "It is an open invitation to fraud if people try to get others to fill in their bank transaction slips. It is our policy not to accept them and staff behaved correctly."

He did not comment however on why they did not help her to make the transfer.
