A Sierra Vista, Arizona, woman says a note from a ‘Chinese prisoner’ ended up inside a purse at her local Walmart.
Laura Wallace’s mother-in-law purchased a purse from the store using a gift card she’d given her. She later found a tiny folded up note inside a zipper compartment.
The note was written in Chinese. Wallace had it translated.
“It actually stated that the person who wrote that was a prisoner in China,” she said. “Basically what their situation was and how they work long hours, 14 hours a day. And they don't have a lot to eat.”
Similar letters have been traced back to stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and K-Mart over the years. In one case, the writer was tracked down in China.
