Woman Accidentally Given $4.6 Million By Bank Spent Millions


A 21-year-old woman who was arrested at Sydney Airport trying to leave Australia allegedly spent millions on handbags and luxury goods after $4.6 million was mistakenly transferred into her bank account.

Christine Jiaxin Lee, a Malaysian national, wrongly received the money after it was transferred into her Westpac bank account as an overdraft four years ago.

The chemical engineering student, who was attempting to leave to Malaysia when she was picked up by Australian Federal Police at Sydney Airport on Wednesday night, still allegedly owes $3.3 million to her bank.
