A Chinese woman who found herself in $3.7 million worth of personal debt changed her appearance with plastic surgery in order to avoid paying it.

According to Reuters, 59-year-old Zhu Najuan fled when she was ordered to pay off her outstanding debt. When police finally apprehended the woman, they were "astonished" at the sight of her.

"We were very surprised at the scene," a policeman said. "She looked in her thirties and was different from the photos we had."

Najuan also disclosed that she had been using other people's identity cards to travel across the country, and she funded her surgery using borrowed bank cards.
