A 59-year old Chinese woman went under the knife to avoid $3.7m of personal debts, state news agency Xinhua said.

Following the woman’s arrest who fled to the south eastern city of Shenzhen after a court in Wuhan ordered her to pay off her debt, police are still in shock as to the length she went.

“We were very surprised at the scene,” Xinhua quoted a policeman as saying. “She looked in her 30s and was different from the photos we had.”

The woman, identified as Zhu Najuan, confessed to have also used different peoples identity to travel around the country. She financed her plastic surgery using borrowed bank cards, it was revealed.

Xinhua said the city of Wuhan has also launched a series of crackdowns on debt defaulters, and detained a total of 186 people in the first half of the year.
