SCAMMERS are Everywhere in CHINA!

  • Published on Oct 6, 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 lost 2 phones in my working city in the bus and in one square.
    As a Chinese, I am soooooooo ashamed of this immoral behavior as well.
    However, Basically speaking, Chinese people are really friendly and hospitality.
    Don't lose trust and faith in this regard.
    Stay awesome!

      You are really doing a great job, Wiston, I would say, you know more deeply than me and other locals about China in some certain aspects .
      Keep going, If you got a chance to film Zhengzhou or Kaifeng, I could offer you a favor if you like when I am back China.
      Cz I really want to change the stereotype for Chinese from other races after travelling lots of countries, even a little bit.
      Anyway, I m gonna keep watching your video.

    what a bad society, i don't think it is because of China, i think it is about overpopulation, and a moral-less surviving instinct

    Hello. I have been robbed by a well groomed man in a store while I was shopping at Nanjing Road, Shanghai. I wanted to buy a shirt and jacket. Store manager approached me in the store that the items that I looked at are very good quality and prices already discounted he told me. But my size was not there. He speaks English very fluently. But girls in the store don't speak English even one word. He asked in Chinese language to the girls and told them to bring right size for me from the depot. Then while I was waiting, store manager told me if I would like to drink something, coffee, water etc. I kindly asked water. He told the other girl to bring me water. Then my size arrived. I wanted to pay by my credit card. But he told me that items already discounted if I pay by credit card, store is going to pay commission to the bank. Then I accepted to pay cash. But I had no Chinese money. I wanted to pay by US dollar cash. He told me that shopping with foreign money is illegal. There is a bank in the shopping mall let me exchange for you he told me. I gave him 200usd and sat down and waited for him with the girls in the store. But he didn't came. One hour passed he didn't returned. Then I asked the girls please call manager I have no more time wait. Girls didn't understand. At the end by the help of one of other shoppers who speaks English I repeated to girls that store manager should return as I have no time to wait. Girls told me that he is not our manager. He is your friend. Then I understand I have been scammed. He played a role against me as if he is a store manager. He also played a role against the store attendant girls that he is my friend. He successfully managed both sides. Then I called Police but Police not found him.

    I admit that there indeed have some black taxis.But very very seldom. This is unavoidable in every country. It depends on drivers personality and different area. By the way, products value only worth of how much money you pay. And I've never been cheated in China since I was born.

    Joined an asian dating site and ended up getting scammed by having me go to a separate site where I had to pay to translate each message. She was from China and said her sister had just got married in my city and she would visit soon. They come up with some clever scams! But I got my money back through Paypal.
