A Taiwan forensic scientist nicknamed the “jigsaw expert” has helped one very lucky man recover $66,000 worth of cash in which he accidentally dropped in a commercial shredder.
The factory owner, identified by his surname Lin, stated that he had accidentally dropped a huge bag filled with Taiwanese notes into an industrial shredding machine at his workplace last month. The bag contained a total of 200,000 Taiwanese dollars which is approximately $6,600 in U.S. dollars.
Luckily for Lin, one forensic expert nicknamed the “jigsaw expert” was able to helped him pieced together his painful mistake.
The 30-year-old forensic expert Liu Hui-fen spent 7 days piecing together all $66K worth of bank notes for free of charge.
When asked how she was able to achieve such task, Liu said “patience.”
Under Taiwanese law, people can claim replacement bills from the central bank as long as at least 75 percent of the original note is pieced together.
