“The incident has affected me a lot since April 18. I can barely eat or sleep,” said a resident of Liaoning province, northeast China. This person, who only revealed her identity as Hang, said that she and her parents deposited a total of 860,000 yuan ($128,000) in three of the four banks mentioned above.

Many customers of these 4 banks also confirm with SCMP that they could not withdraw money either in person or online, with total savings deposits ranging from 200,000 yuan to more than 1.5 million yuan.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) last month announced that “relevant departments have opened an investigation” into the four banks mentioned above.
