A woman ‘accidentally transferred her salary to a stranger’ and received a savage response when she asked for it back.

Bistari told her followers: “Today I got my first salary.

“It’s not much as I had just worked a few days. I banked in the money to my mother but long story short, I accidentally banked it to another person.”

It’s believed that Bistari didn’t realise she’d made the error until her confused mum said she had not received the money.

When Bistari looked into who she had transferred her salary over to, she reached out to the person and explained the situation.

Apparently, they weren’t feeling very sympathetic towards her and reportedly told her the mistake could be written off as ‘charity’.

Emotional, Bistari continued: “My mother gave me the phone number of the person and I called, texted and WhatsApped them. Finally, they asked me to think of it as a donation to them.

“It’s not that I don’t want to donate but my pay is very little and I wanted to give it to my mother.”
