What would you do if you were given 1.2 billion yuan (around S$248 million) by mistake?

Absconding with the cash might have crossed your mind, regardless of how fleetingly.

According to Shanghaiist, a Rural Commercial Bank in Changsha had accidentally transferred the large sum of money to a man's newly-opened account.

The man, Liu, soon received a call from the bank, informing him of the error and requesting for him to come in and return the money -- which the man complied with.

For returning the fortune, Liu was rewarded with a packet of cigarettesĀ and a red envelope containing 200 yuan.
