A man in Guangzhou was recently detained by police for using a fake identity card to open a bank account.
The suspect surnamed Pan confessed that he had spent 50 yuan to get the fake identity card made because he was afraid that his girlfriend’s father would disapprove of their marriage if he found out that he was nine years older than her, Guangzhou Daily reports.
Pan successfully married his sweetheart, but things were not to be. When trying to open a bank account, Pan unwittingly handed over the fake identity card instead of his real one.
The bank clerk reported the matter to the police, and officers were swiftly dispatched to the bank branch to detain Pan.
The case is currently awaiting trial.
