Chinese tea scam, Chinese tea ceremony scam, etc etc. Many variations on a simple theme. You are walking along in big Chinese city and you are approached by young students, male or female, speaking good English. Chinese people have a reputation for being very friendly, so you go along. They want to practice their English. You walk along for a bit and they suggest you go for some tea. They direct you to some Chinese tea shop. The menu comes, you order rounds of tea. Prices seem a bit on the high side, but not unusual. Some pastries come later. Then the bill comes, and it’s totally outrageous. You’re out $200-750, and you better pay up or else. The nice friendly young “students” act baffled by the whole thing. This scam is spreading all over China and it is nailing Americans and now Brits left and right. It’s epidemic. You go to the cops and they refuse to do anything about it. Stupid Americans! Haha! My God, scams are everywhere, aren’t they? Watch out!
