A lot of people say that money is not important, but it actually is. We need money to survive, which is why a Chinese grandfather was horrified when he found out that his 11-year-old grandson spent 40,000 yuan (approx. US$5,965.00) of his retirement money on something unimportant.
The young boy has drained his grandfather’s retirement savings by using his phone to tip live-streaming hostesses. The elderly man was said to only have 600 yuan (approx. $90) left from his pension.
Identified only by his surname Li, the grandfather in Sichuan province uses his retirement money for purchasing his needs like food and medicine. However, he was shocked to discover that a huge chunk of his funds had vanished from his bank account in the span of three days.
He immediately suspected his grandson, nicknamed Xiaowei, who he admitted regularly played on his phone and knew the password to his online cash account because he had been given access to it to pay for food.
After checking his transaction history, Li discovered that almost all of his savings were used on the live-streaming app iQiyi, one of the largest online video websites in China.
Images of bank statements released by Cover News show the boy had completed 54 transactions on iQiyi, where money would be converted to “Qidou,” a virtual currency for members to tip hosts, purchase videos or play games.
In addition to tipping, Xiaowei also admitted to using the money to play video games.
Although his grandson owned up to his mistakes, Li has all the right to be upset, and understandably so, because the money that Xiaowei used for only three days was meant to be his retirement income for the whole year.
The family reported the case to iQiyi and said the money was Li’s retirement income for the entire year. In response, the video-hosting website has said it will offer a full refund of the money after they complete an investigation on the incident — this is because, in China, anyone under the age of 18 is deemed a minor and is considered to have limited capacity for civil conduct.
