Q: Hanwha cooperation scam?

My friend is currently talking to an HR rep from this company but something is off and I mean way off. First he asked for 50usd to do a background check (1500rmb if my friend was inside China luckily he was not) and he got a report back from the China bureau headquarters (huh?)  I looked online and found no such department. Then he wanted my friends bank account info to deposit money when my friend hadn’t worked for his company for one day. He wanted to deposit 600,000rmb (huh). Anybody else with a similar experience?

I arried Beijing few weeks ago, started looking for a job, and the same thing happen to me.

He asked for an interview and then said something is wrong with the net, and he cant see nor hear me, even that it was really clear. so he asked for the interview to be in text. We had the interview and then send me a contract to sign, but after that he said I need to contact Xiamen bureau service to get some papers like criminal record and stuff I search and there was no place like this, I emailed them at night, and they replied emedialty witch is more concerning. Than they asked me for the money 1500 rmb.

I am not mad for loosing a job offer, but sad that people go and do things like this to earn money this way while others are working so hard.

I wanted to share my experience so be carful everyone, dont fall for this.

If anyone want more info just contact me and i ll do my best to help.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
