One woman came up with the ultimate hustle to raise money for a down payment on a home.

Xiaoli, a woman from the city of Shenzhen in southern China, asked each of her 20 current boyfriends to buy her a new iPhone. She then turned around and sold the 20 iPhones to a mobile phone recycling site called Hui Shou Bao for over $17,000 USD, and used the money to put down a deposit on a house in the countryside.

The woman is not from a wealthy family. Her mother is a housewife, her dad is a migrant worker, and she is the oldest daughter. Her parents are getting old and she was under a lot of pressure hoping to buy them a house, therefore she had to think 'outside the box' to raise the money to purchase a home.

I don't know what's more surprising, the fact that she was able to use this method to pull it off, or the fact that she has 20 boyfriends!
