Most recently, the Chinese government penalized a very notable actress upwards of $70 Million.

Apparently, Fan Bingbing was playing a shuffle game with her contracts.
Like and old-school con game, Bingbing would report one contract — in one example, it showed she earned about $1-$2 Million — for the role, when in fact there was a second contract that showed she actually earned closer to $7M.
