A middle-aged woman went to extraordinary lengths to avoid paying her multi-million debts by undergoing plastic surgery to dramatically alter her appearance before she fled across the country on a high speed train paid for with ‘borrowed’ money.
Zhu Najuan, 59, had been ordered by a court in Wuhan, central China, to pay off her huge debts which amounted to a total of 25 million yuan ($3.71 million).
Instead, she opted to dramatically alter her appearance and start a new life in the city of Shenzhen in southern China.
However, by mid-July, police tracked Zhu down and arrested her.
"We were very surprised at the scene," a policeman said, as cited by the Chinese state news agency Xinhua. "She looked in her thirties and was different from the photos we had."
