These are not isolated incidents, People have tried using similar scams on me in Rome, Madrid, Dubai and Paris. There are nice people around the world and there are BOZO's everywhere as well. Just travel with caution and be aware of people who approach you. I got ripped off by a great looking blonde in Texas. It happens.

I've been in Shanghai now for many months and previously 2 holidays and there are very few stories of scammers however when I went to Beijing however the culture was a lot more cold and I felt I was being scammed otherwise I feel this video is unnecessary scare mongering

a good rule of thumb is to take a pretend mobile fone and wallet with fake currency inside, have your real fone and wallet secure in your backpack which you carry on your chest
and under NO circumstances do you engage with anyone trying to sell you things, oh and uber if possible, or take a photo of the taxis credentials when you get in the taxis
also helps if you pack your brain :)

1.00 dollar = 7 Yen If you don't bargain, you die, if you accidentally leave something expensive in a normal cab, 97% of the time, it's gonna be gone. I got relatives in China so this is not a problem but for those who don't have relatives, be carful, China has a semi-weak government system so they can't control their people very well. I'm not saying that you shouldn't go to China, just find a safe place to go to, like Nanjing, Purple Crystal Mountain. That's where my old house is.

At least you wont risk getting beheaded by a muslim fanatic.
China takes a hard line with immigration and amazingly enough has practically no muslim terrorist attacks.
Poland does too despite taking in a LOT of immigrants from the Ukraine mostly and has almost zero terrorist attacks.
How can this possibly be when diversity is our strength?
PS god bless Poland and keep flying your flag !!!!!

I'LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER BIG TIP ON BARGAINING. ONCE YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU THINK IS A FAIR PRICE ON WHAT YOU'RE BUYING AND THEY ARE STILL HAGGLING . JUST SAY NO AND START TO WALK AWAY. THEY WILL THEN SAY WAIT ! WAIT ! COMEBACK AND COME CHASING AFTER YOU TO ACCEPT YOUR OFFER. LEARNED THAT ONE OVERSEAS IN THE NAVY. WORKS LIKE A CHARM.

I know, there's these two guys who ride around on motorcycles, making videos to convince gullible foreigners that they should spend all their money on a return ticket to China. Of course the picture they display is completely different to what YOU get in reality.

The worst I heard was back in 2005, a friend walked to the back of the taxi to put his baggage in it and the guy drove off with it after he closed the trunk. The bags had his phone, etc. They got into his phone somehow, and texted everyone on his list saying "I lost my wallet and need money to get home! Please send 1000 rmb (180usd?) to my account (number)." A lot of people sent money, and so the scammers made around 20,000 rmb off his friends. The phone story aside, after that we skipped any taxis drivers that didn't get out of the vehicle. It still annoys me living in other countries when taxis drivers don't get out, which is virtually everywhere. Anyway, our backwater city had maybe 100 westerners living there, and yea, a lot of them ended up on billboards; always shitheads running around snapping out pictures.

its mostly like some travel tips i i think. it happens every country when u are travelling. For me as a chinese i got 1 time pickpocketing happened in london subway. 1 time dagger robbery in NY ally. leaving some terrible experiences to me. but i never had same things in china as i lived 36 years here. normally local chinese know the prices and they will bargin. shopkeeper and some privite sellers think western travellers dont know the normal prices and they will double or even triple it.
also some more tips for you:

1, Guangzhou and Shenzhen are immigrants cities, more commerial, more money, more scammers, specially for past decade. now their security are getting MUCH more better than before. Better try Beijing or Shanghai as a traveller not a businessman. businessmen keep going to G&S because they love fake branded items there.

2,Dont dressed so officially going to bus stations or some low-income communities and keep videoing yourslef. even a chinese in a suit goes there, keep recording yourself, other walk-bys will stare at you. chinese are normally introverted, they will fell curious about those who do same things in public area. you will attract all the scammers within 5 kilometers around you.

I honestly don't know why you are making those statements so certainly, I mean, how long have you even been in China LOL? Don't try to make yourself look like an expert and know so much about the culture, it's really misleading TBH. Again, does China have those problems? yes, but it's nothing like "oh wow, it's baked into the culture or some BS like that". I know it's always nice to get more views on your video, but not in this way dude. And people, do not get fooled by this man LOL

So if I manage to protect all my belongings at all times and never trust anyone on top of avoiding the hilariously corrupt police force while I am in china I can have a nice time there?
I think japan just got a lot more enticing or just follow the trend and go to Thailand :D

tell your friend those watches were sold at RMB15-30 to me (haha~~but it was 10 years ago). I don't visit Mainland China anymore because it is not safe. Go to TaoBao for shopping. Save your energy to bargain with uncivilized people.

Interesting video for sure, basically just reinforced my views of Chinese culture 😆😝
But I'm curious - why did you move from SA to China? I'm also British-South African, now living in USA, and I've never thought that moving to China wld be a fun experience. In fact it's about the last place I'd want to go to. Anyway, be interesting to know. Stay safe out there 💥👍🏼

The earliest and biggest scammers were the East Indian Corporation and Hudsons Bay companies, effectively the British Empire. They were the greatest drugs trafficers and dealers.

London scammers are the best :)...dont forget they go door to door with all kind of stories abusing the kind hearted people. I mean, funny how you make china sounds scary, and your self said they hardly have violent crimes. Once again, violent crimes happen on daily basis in place like London New York etc, people get mugged at knife point, or simply beaten and robbed, people even end up killed...on daily basis. But speaking on the scam thing, in places like London there are lot of legal scam going on. Lots of fake agencies in employment that do not sort you a job but just trick you to sell you certifications, especially in areas like Care, Hospitality etc. ...You mate shall go back and explore your own country, lots of people will be thankful to see your nice overviews on specific topics that matter to fresh londoners :)
