Beware:  China fraud asked people to sign contract in China

Independent travel tips for the professional at Leisure

November 2008

 

I recently got an e-mail from a friend who was approached by a "business" in China, offering a lucrative deal.  These Chinese scammers said that they would buy over a hundred thousands dollars in services, but the victim must travel to China to sign the contract!

So, what's the scam?  I did some research and discovered that foreign scammers offer-up huge contracts, but them require the person to travel to China to sign the contract!

Once the victim arrives in China, they are given a convincing con game where they are greeted by an entourage, take to a fancy fake office, all to lead them to believe that it's a real deal.

The hook is that the victim is asked to pay for expensive meals, expensive presents for the boss, and a tariff on the transaction.  It's all a scam, so beware!

Read my full notes here is this new scan:  Never travel to a foreign country to sign a contract
