Living With 100,000 Cockroaches, And Enjoying It

Keeping our homes free of cockroaches is a priority for just about everybody. So it is hard to imagine anybody willingly living with cockroaches, let alone one hundred thousand of them. However, one Chinese woman, Yuan Meixia, lives with at least this many cockroaches, and she loves it. She is with the roaches during all their life stages, and she treats them like their her own children. You may be wondering why anybody would be willing to live with hundreds of thousands of cockroaches. Well, for Yuan Meixia, keeping cockroaches earns her a hefty profit from pharmaceutical companies. These companies use roaches as an ingredient in some medications.

Meixia, is a 37-year-old pharmacy employee located in the Fujian province. Meixia’s home is situated next to a heavily forested region where roaches are common. This makes finding her beloved roaches a rather easy task. Sadly, Meixia is eventually forced to let go of her pet roaches. The roaches are eventually dried and sold to a factory located in the Anhui province. Despite only having the roaches for a short time, she claims to care for all of them like they were her own children. Meixia certainly puts a lot of time into caring for the roaches in her home, as she regularly keeps her walls covered in water during the warmer seasons so the roaches do not become too hot. During the colder season she keeps a gaslight stove operating all day in order to keep the roaches warm. Her home is also customized to be roach-friendly.

Meixia keeps more palmetto bugs than any other type of cockroach. Palmetto bugs are winged cockroaches that are common in America. In fact, sometimes palmetto bugs are referred to as American cockroaches in the United States. Here in the US, many people confuse palmetto bugs with beetles or other types of insects. Palmetto bugs thrive in damp conditions and they are attracted to sweets and starch. Palmetto bugs and other roaches have long been used as medical remedies. According to Researchers at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Palmetto bugs can benefit liver functioning. These types of roaches are used for treating liver-related ailments, and more.

Would you live with hundreds of thousand of insects if you were paid a hefty profit for doing so? Is there any amount of money that could get you to adopt and raise roaches, or any other types of insects?

Wells Fargo bank teller stole nearly $200,000 from a customer and spent it on a down payment for his home and several vacations

Wells Fargo

A Wells Fargo bank teller accused of stealing $185,000 from a homeless customer has agreed to a plea deal, according to court documents cited by The Washington Post.

The former employee, 29-year-old Phelon Davis, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of interstate transfer of stolen property this week after a 2014 encounter with a homeless customer who tried to deposit $185,000 in cash at a Wells Fargo branch in Washington, DC, the court documents said.

The customer, who was not named but was described as a homeless street vendor, had existing accounts at the bank, but he lacked the identification documents he needed to deposit the $185,000 worth of cash he had been carrying in a garbage bag. The Post said. The man was turned away.

The homeless man “had a surprisingly large balance with the bank,” The Post reported, citing a document related to the case. Davis was accused of forging the customer’s signature to fraudulently open a Wells Fargo account in the customer’s name — including an online login, an ATM card, and personal identification number, all of which Davis controlled. He funded the account with $3,000 of the homeless customer’s money.

The customer had no access to email or the internet, according to The Post, and thus had no knowledge of the fraudulent activity, the newspaper said.

Court documents showed that, over the course of two years, Davis transferred $177,400 of that customer’s money between accounts, and withdrew $185,440, taking $5,000 across state lines, the court documents said. Davis used some of the stolen cash as a down payment on his home, took several vacations, and paid some debts.

Davis has been ordered to pay back the stolen money and could face up to 30 months in prison.

It appears Davis fraudulently opened the accounts during the same period in which Wells Fargo employees were accused of fraudulently opening millions of accounts in customers’ names between at least 2011 and 2015. It was unclear whether Davis’ activity was related to that scandal, which exploded in 2016 and eventually drove then-CEO John Stumpf out of the company. Wells Fargo in July agreed to shell out $142 million to settle the matter.
