A masseur in Shanghai has taken it upon himself to take a few shots at the $10 bill.
“I’ve been trying to get this $10 note back since it was made in China and I got it at Walmart,” said the masseur, named Jianli.
“I’ve put it on my phone and I’ve sent it to my friends, who are all really mad.”
Jianli, who has also had a few friends in the US write to him to complain about the bill, has been in the habit of asking people to hand him $10 bills for a while now.
“There was one friend who gave me $10 and then he said ‘I think I’ve lost $100 in the process,’ so I gave him another $10,” Jianli said.
“And he’s just been so mad about it that he’s actually sent me a message saying ‘I’ve never had a $10 before, but this is really stupid,'” Jianli added.
“He’s a nice guy and he really appreciates what I do.
He’s going to send me $100 back and then I’ll give him another one.”
A spokesperson for Walmart told ABC News that it’s not uncommon for a store to offer its customers free gift cards but did not confirm or deny the authenticity of Jianli’s story.
A representative for the Chinese government did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
