In some Asian cultures, the wealthier people think you are, the better you are treated – so when 22-year-old Ji Moubing learned his father wasn't going to buy him the BMW he wanted, he came up with a cunning plan.

While visiting a BMW dealership in Shangrao city in Jiangxi Province, the young hopeful Ji, expressed interest in the latest BMW 3 series with a stretched wheelbase. The Li series is sold exclusively in China and is popular with affluent businessmen.

Ji was caught on surveillance video walking up to the car before deliberately scratching the expensive saloon twice along the rear door with a set of keys. He then informed the dealership staff that he intended to purchase the damaged car and his father would arrive soon to pay for it.

Police were called and Ji was detained. He admitted causing the damage in an effort to get his father to buy him the car. Local police officer Chen Junnan scolded Ji, telling him he was acting 'like a spoilt child', before sending him to jail. It's not reported if Ji's father relented and bought him the car, or arranged to have the damage repaired.
