A man in Changsha, Central China's Hunan province has returned about 1.2 billion yuan ($175 million dollars) mistakenly sent by a bank, Beijing Youth Daily reports.

The man surnamed Liu said that he opened an account at a bank branch of the Rural Commercial Bank in Changsha on January 15th, and later he received a call from the bank asking him to return a large sum of money mistakenly sent by the bank.

The bank told him that a new employee mistook Liu's 10-digit account number for a transfer amount and sent 1.2 billion yuan to Liu. Liu forgave the mistake and returned the money to the bank, and in return the bank gave him a packet of cigarettes and a red envelope of 200 yuan ($29 dollars).
