SCAMMERS are Everywhere in CHINA!

  • Опубликовано: 6 окт 2017
  • Traveller beware, China is a wonderful place to visit but you are very likely to get scammed, and not just the occasional traveller, everyone! Knowledge is Power, and even if you live here you have to be on your guard. Scamming is a part of daily life in one way or the other, but armed with this knowledge, you should be able to avoid the worst scams and have an amazing experience travelling throughout China.

    I have been in China for 7 years. I would say that if you are in a tourist city then be wary of anyone coming up to meet you. But if you are in a non tourist area or maybe I should say a non tourist city , one that is not frequented by foreigners, then it is not uncommon for the local people to want to talk to you and it is far far less likely that they are trying to do anything but be friendly and speak some English. As far as Chinese always taking the side of another Chinese person, I would not say this is always true. I have had Chinese, who did not know me, shout at merchants who tried to charge me just an extra yuan or two. As was said in the video, tourist areas are the same all over the world, they tend to attract scammers. So you really need to be on your guard when you visit those areas. If you want to really know China you need to get away from the tourist areas. Most of the people are really great!

    I live in US .. when I got to the Supermarket I always look at the label to see where it's from and if it says China I don't buy it. Other products I'm very iffy with too ... I will only buy Chinese if I can't find another product from another country. Not that I don't like China, but I just don't trust them to be hygienic with food and I wouldn't put it pass them to use dangerous chemicals into their products.

    As a Chinese, I need to say, 能骗就骗 is not a Chinese idiom. And you piece of shit, use a fake identity to scam money in China and make some videos in Chinese to say how good China is to make money from Chinese people. And you just turn around make English videos on RU-clip to say how bad China is to all over the world. I can't say everything you said is false, but over half of them is talking rubbish, just like 能骗就骗. I wanna say, double-dealing is a typical style of scumbag

    BOTTOM LINE don't GO to China. Plenty of other places to visit where English is known or at least Spoken even if it's a Bit Broken, but FUN to try and
    Teach English. NO SCAMMERS PLEASE

    America is the most blessed country in the entire Universe. We have some of the greatest sites in the world. We have all 4 seasons and even have Summer and Winter going on at the same time. I can never see the allure to go to places like china or Europe... to do what? See the Eiffel Tower? If I want to enjoy the beach outside of America I go to the Caribbean. Skiing ...we have Colorado. Monumental buildings ... Washington DC. It's all here at a very reasonable price. And don't forget that you can see this country on videos ... that's enough for me.

    Nihoa!!! I Wish I had seen these Vlogs before I travelled to China years ago. I could write a book on the many scams I came across. But scams happen everywhere I have travel not only in China. Locals see a Western face and automatically see a potential ATM machine. Be a vigilant tourist. Even with all those crooks on the streets, there are honest locals who yes, want a selfie with a westerner.... and are excited to meet you. Yes... it sucks to be scammed and leaves you with a very bad taste on your mouth regarding that country. The sad thing happening now is that Chinese people are travelling more in recent years and are taking these " locally accepted customs" with them to other countries and are building a very bad reputation for the Chinese tourist. I loved my many trips to China but I had to learn the hard way about all those ruthless people working the streets and ripping off tourists. Great tips on your Vlogs. Xiexie in :)

    I lived in Xian for 4 years. Loved it. But...was robbed 3 times on crowded buses. First time was my fault, I was far too careless. Second time, caught the guy, and was given most of the cash back. That is, with a bit of quick sleight of hand, the thief still managed to get a bit. Third time, I still have no idea how they managed it. I've also witnessed and stopped 2 pickpockets in progress. Anyway, was an overall great experience, you just need to be careful at all times ie money is kept in inside, zipped pockets.

      +serpentza whoever fund you, you should be ashamed of yourself. You could find a proper job as a man, instead, you choose to do such a despicable "job" which turns the truth upside down of a country. Honestly, I should say thank you, your videos are good filters that filter those idiots who trust you. Tell your sponsors or sugar daddy, your efforts are hilarious, please keep going on your videos of justice. Just because of your videos about China, protect our land from the harassment of those idiots who believe in your words.
      Another thing, your mama would be sad if she knows his son is doing such a dirty job, ohhhhh, what a naughty boy lol.

    No it doesn't. Do you seriously think that there are *this much* people out to steal your stuff the moment you leave the airport in other countries? Fuck no! Stop trying to cover it up as some global thing when this amount of bullshit happens nowhere else in USA and Europe. Most people there will actually treat you like a person, not some "gullible foreigner" and won't mug you in broad daylight only to get away with it because of the pussy bystanders and nationalist police like in China. If you're going to China because of the culture, have fun and be careful. However if you seriously think it's safe and/or accepting place at any level for tourists, just go to Japan and thank me later.

    absolutely on point for monk, but bargaining is very common in China, 能骗就骗happens in non legitimate business, and crowded, fluid environment like airports, train stations, etc. Whenever you see someone who has no money to go back home, you dial 110 and ask the police to send them back. Tantan and Momo is equivalent to Tinder, but it's also entry to underground brothel. When you are scammed, call police, they'll take care of you.

    When I was in port authority(NYC bus station) couple years ago, a dude came up to me to ask me where I was going. I literally just got the direction from the info center and he insisted to take me to my stop which is a block away. I was like, oh, how nice Americans are, so I let him to lead the way. And it turned out he was asking for 20 dollars, insane wasn't it. I ended up giving him a dollar because he wouldn't leave.
    Scams exist everywhere really, Japan is no different when I visited Tokyo and Osaka.

      only because you've been there for a while you see it every day imagine if someone from a country like area in Alabama flew too China for there first time and have no idea what any of these scams are that's why they exist because it works on people who have never seen social scams before most scams in the U.S are through bartering like here we have swap meets where people get together in a field and sell there stuff at vendors and there is so many scams there if you are not careful and don't know what swap meets can be like you can be fooled into buying fake art or something like a stolen gun

    They are not scum, they just charge higher in the first shopping centre, just like how you're buying 2nd cars in your home country. It all depends on what kind of shopping centres you go. They're not trying to rip you off, this is just how they make money from business. All tourists should know do not talk to strangers, scammers focus on single tourist.

    Before anyone comments anything, does anyone even think about why this guy still lives in China for years if scams are all over China? I mean, I wouldn't stay in a country for years if scams are everywhere in that country. It just doesn't make sense. It's like someone makes a video telling people how bad a restaurant is and how awful the food is, yet he still goes to this restaurant for years.
