Because of the rampant “holdup” incidents and scams, financial institutions across the country have been regularly advising their clients to be more careful when using their ATM cards. But for certain, people with criminal inclinations will always find a way to break the law and steal from unsuspecting ATM users.
Last February 16, a woman named Li was robbed by a man wearing a black jacket and wielding a knife. The incident happened when the victim was withdrawing cash from an ATM in Guangdong city of Heyuan, China.
As shown in the video, Li gave the crook her money withdrawal worth 2,500 Yuan (that’s approximately 19,000 PHP). The robber then forced her to check her ATM balance.
When he saw that the woman had no money left in the bank, the felonious man returned the cash to her and then, smiled and left.
Li was left standing in the ATM booth in complete shock. According to the Straits Times, the victim was willing to hand over all her money to the robber, in an effort to avoid a physical altercation.
However, this incident came with serious consequences for the suspect. At the moment, the man remains in the custody of the local police – despite the praises he received from people online. A netizen even dubbed him as the “world’s kindest crook”.
