Returning a Large Amount of Overpaid Money
(Minghui.org) A final payment was made by a company who'd ordered products from my company. I had four partners in the business, so I divided up the profit evenly.
After dividing up the money, I realized that there was considerably more than I had been expecting from this transaction. I could not check the records as no one seemed to know where the invoices were. One of my partners suggested I just forget the matter, since we already had the money and had divided it up.
I practice Falun Dafa, and Master Li – Dafa's founder and teacher – teaches us to always think of others. I explained this to the other partners. I said that the owner had overpaid us with money that he could spend on more orders from us. How could we feel good about not returning the overpayment? I explained the principle of no loss and no gain, from the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun. They understood completely and all agreed that the money should be returned.
I paid a visit to the company owner the very next day and told him that he had overpaid us, and he inquired about the amount. I said I thought he'd overpaid us by nearly 20,000 yuan. He was surprised and wanted to check the invoices. They were buried in a pile of papers on his desk.
We recalculated the payment and I returned just over 18,000 yuan to him. Then I explained what I had learned from Falun Dafa. He now knows that Falun Dafa is good. We chatted more, and I told him about the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and how important it was for him to quit the CCP for a better life. He agreed to quit.
He was touched and thanked me many times. I told him to thank the Master of Falun Dafa.
Thank you Master. Thank you Falun Dafa.
