Yes, I know how to reach her. My friend in Chicago just started sleeping with a Chinese girl named "Jun". She told him that some creepy stalker keeps sending her money and trying to marry her and that this stalker has now resorted to starting moronic troll threads on random websites. She has a dilemma though: should she ignore the stalker or allow him to open a joint bank account so she can use his money to go to nightclubs with my friend and other foreign men that she's attracted to? Quite the predicament indeed.

Questions
* Did you meet her in real life ?

* Did you lived with her for substantial amount of time (ie. a year or more) ?

* Did you meet her family ?

 

If the answer to any of those questions is "no", then

* Do not marry her yet
* Do not join your bank account

It's not in the name of some tradition, it's in the name of your own security. It's not specific to China : the story of the young beautiful bride-to-be from who scams a soul looking for love. I've seen that 1st hand a few times, you don't want that.

...You don't have any contact info for her?

No wechat/qq/skype/phone number/email?  Call me cold and heartless if you want, but not having any contact info makes me think that MAYBE she isn't quite as into you as you think...  if she loved you, she would have given you a way to contact her.

You're opening a bank account exclusively for marijuana purchases?

Normally I object to the idea of engaging in commerce with complete arseholes, but you've probably heard of The O'Reilly Factor.

 

Write to Bill and tell him about these circumstances and he'll send you one of his free t-shirts with "wise up" emblazoned across it.

 

It's the most fitting solution to your dilemma I can think of and it's nice to think that bloated arse is good for something.

Believe me, if she thinks she can get access to your bank account she will contact you.

Your life would be more colorful with more two or more bank accounts from different banks and maybe be more useful at times.

Thank you Mr Shabi....you have have made my day and restored my faith in humanity.

I am delighted that true morons aren't a myth afterall. Thank you again Sir.

By the way...do you live with your mum? Have you ever been ripped off by a 419 scammer pretending to be Chinesese girl before? Do losers call you a loser?

Jun is right here! I'll tell her you're looking for her when she wakes up tomorrow morning. 

I am sure she will like the joint account idea, but sadly, she has no money to contribute.

Bad idea. The joint account thing is a really bad idea. Even if you can trust her. Why? Because of all the people who will have access to her computer since all she's doing is visiting infected websites like 99% of Chinese people.

 

She's just using you for your money. That's the ONLY reason she's even bothering to talk to you... to make money. Here's what I'd do: Put on a big show of setting everything up for her, so you can give her money... just don't actually do it. The more official you can make it look, the better. Then disappear. Bonus points if you get to plow her first.

 

Stay away from gold diggers.

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
