 Judges just know how to deal with deadbeats - after discovering a deadbeat has no property under his name to be enforced, a judge took away his piggy bank. 

A video that recently circulated on the Internet shows a judge and workers who were owed money in Huzhou City, East China's Zhejiang Province, taking a piggy bank from the home of a contractor surnamed Ying. The contractor had failed to pay wages to the four workers. With a mandate from the judge, the four workers and the judge went to the man's house and took money from his piggy bank and the four men took the equivalent he owed them. 

Ying has no bank account and no property, which made it impossible to collect the debt by enforcing the process through the law. 

A netizen wrote on China's Twitter-like platform Sina Weibo, "Judging by the piggy bank, Ying is far from broke. People who are short of money will not have so much change sitting idly in a savings jar."
