A Chinese businesswoman, who was named only as Ms Li, reportedly turned up at a dealership in the city of Zhengzhou and used 100,000 small denomination bank notes to purchase a BMW 730Li. The deposit for the car was 10,000 British pounds ($15,000) and the large pile of small bills weighed around 220 lbs, or 100,000 notes.
According to reports. Ms. Li paid the remaining balance with a credit card. Twenty dealership’s employees have participated in the counting of Ms. Li’s fortune.
In an interview with the Zhengzhou Evening Post, Jia Tinghai, the dealership’s marketing director, captured her reaction to the purchase in three words. “Oh my God,” she said. Ms. Li told local media that because she was “often busy she had decided to keep the banknotes until she was able to spend them all at once when buying a car”.
