This Chinese New Year, a debt collection company got creative.
The Singapore based company dressed up its employees as the Chinese God of Wealth when visiting the homes of debtors.
However, fret not!
The employees of Fast Debt Recovery Specialist (FDRS) shared photos of a staff member dressed in the elaborate red robes and headgear and explained that the person was not sent to collect debt but to spread festive cheer.
Huat Ah! Heng Ah!
“The God of Fortune continued with his visitations today despite ending late last night.
“God of Fortune is there to give luck, not there to demand for payment,” the company wrote on its Facebook page, as quoted by a report in Malay Mail.
The employees in the God of Wealth costume reportedly gave away goodie bags containing two mandarin oranges, a Toto lottery ticket, and a 4D number to the debtors.
In a follow up post, the company said one of the debtors even managed to strike a lottery via the ticket dished out.
Hopefully he used it to settle his debt.
