Chinese Fisherman Has Buried Life Savings Eaten By Worms

Let this be a lesson to all you wannabe hustlers with money stashed in your shoe box…

A pensioner who didn’t trust his local bank to look after his life savings chose to bury the money in the ground – only for most of it to be eaten by worms.

Poor Wu Chen, 67, stashed the cash in a carrier bag five years ago, feeling sure it would be safe.

But when he recently came to make a withdrawal he found that insects had been feasting on his funds and there wasn’t a lot left.

Mr Chen didn’t tell anyone when he squirreled away the 35,000 RMB (£3,627) in a plastic bag, placing it in a hole in Deyang, in south-west China’s Sichuan Province.

He said: “It was my pension fund payment and all of the savings I’ve had from working as a fisherman all my life.”

That’s a sad way to lose what amounts to about $5,000 in U.S. dollars. Shoulda put the money in a real safe, playa!
