Reported in a paper in Amsterdam last year and "supposedly" true. Explains why the figures are in Euros.

A blond girl entered a bank in the centre of Amsterdam asking for a loan. She said that she needed EUR 5000 for a business trip of two weeks to the USA. The bank employee said that he needed a guarantee for the loan. The blond picked up her car keys and gave the man the keys of a brand new Rolls Royce, which was parked in front of the bank.

The identity papers of the girl and the car were thoroughly checked and every thing was OK. The bank accepted the Rolls as a guarantee for the
loan. After she left the bank manager and his employees were really amused about the fact that someone offered a EUR 250.000 worth car as guarantee for a loan of only EUR 5000. Typical for a blond girl was the general opinion. One of the employees drove the Rolls into the underground garage of the bank and parked it there.

After 2 weeks the blond girl returned and paid for the loan and the EUR 20 interest. The employee greeted her kindly and said the bank was pleased to have done business with her but reluctantly admitted to be a bit confused about
it. After she had left the bank two weeks earlier, he had checked her financial status. She appeared to be a multi-millionaire. Why for heaven's sake had she asked for the loan while she was so rich?

The blond girl smiled and said: "Where else in Amsterdam centre can I park my car for two weeks for only EUR 20?"
