A Guangdong teacher was shocked to discover that one of her third grades students had been given a credit card with over one million yuan on it by his parents, Netease reports.
The third grader in question had bought a large amount of food and gifts for his classmates on his credit card. Concerned that he was impoverishing himself for the sake of his classmates, the teacher made the boy take her to an ATM so she could check the card’s balance. To her surprise there was over a million yuan left on the card even after the boy’s gift-giving.
Questioned by the teacher, the boy said that the money was given to him by his father to help him learn “financial management”. However, when the school contacted the boy’s parents they told quite a different story.
Rather than being a spoiled little fuerdai, this third grader is closer to a criminal entrepreneur. Eager to exercise some swag in front of his classmates, he hoodwinked his father into telling him his pin number so he could use his credit card to pay “tuition”.
The school has since returned the father’s card (minus whatever his son spent) to him.
