A man in Singapore paid his debt, amounting to $19,000 to a luxury car dealership with coins after a conviction against him by a local court, which forced him to pay the amount mentioned before.
It all started in 2010 when the man went to the dealership to sell his Aston Martin V8 Vantage and get a Bentley Continental GT. The people of the dealership told him that they have to do some extra work to repair the Aston Martin, so it can be sold easily. The repairs costed $ 11,000 and the man said that he will pay his debt when the car is sold. The British car remained unsold in the dealership for more than 18 months and the man send his Aston Martin to another dealership, which sold it almost immediately. But there starts the legal battle between the two sides, the man refused to pay the price of $ 11,000, because he claims that the dealership tried to exploit him.
Eventually the case was solved and the court ordered the man to pay $ 19,000 ($ 11,000 for the cost of repairs and $ 8,000 for costs lawyers). So to show his opposition, he paid his debt with coins which were transferred to the dealership in a fish shipping box. As you can understand, the coins still have smell like fish.
