The plaintiff Hu Guangrong has made four term deposits in Changsha Branch of XX Bank in Hunan Province, the total amount of which is USD 48,000. On 31st January 1996, upon expiration of the deposit accounts, he went to the bank with the deposit receipts to withdraw the money, but an employee of the bank told him that his deposits had been withdrawn already. The employee said the four term deposits were taken by “Hu Guangren” who claimed to be Hu Guangrong’s younger brother. That person used his and Huang Guangrong’s ID cards to report the lost of the deposit receipts on 12th January 1996, and, going through the reporting-for-lost formalities, saved those money into another current account on 19th January, then exchanged the money into RMB and withdrew all the money on 25th January.
