How We Got Scammed Out of $100,000 in Shanghai
Monica Shi & Amanda Shi

I enjoyed this read, but I can’t say I support the sweeping generalizations you made at the end. Sure, this scam definitely wasn’t an isolated incident, and I understand your frustration at falling victim to a (not-so) cheap trick, but are you really going to have the moral of this story be that China as a whole only cares about money? It might be reasonable to call China’s tourism industry corrupt, but dragging in the whole country is a bit sensationalist, and makes it look like you’re trying to get this story picked up by Buzzfeed or something.

Like what you read? Give Eric Yang a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
