just walk away and don't let them have your money or custom.

as Stiggs says, Chinese people will rip anyone and everyone off, and think themselves clever.

Lithuania Tells People To Throw Away Chinese Smartphones Due To "Cybersecurity Risks"teaser image

"This is important not only to Lithuania but to all countries which use Xiaomi equipment." 

FRI SEP 24, AT 8:45 AM

 

Lithuania's National Cyber Security Centre (NKSC) released a new report Thursday urging consumers to throw away their Chinese smartphones due to cybersecurity and censorship risks.

NKSC, which is part of the Defense Ministry, found that Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi had built-in censorship tools to detect and censor phrases such as "Free Tibet," "Long live Taiwan independence," "People's daily newspaper," and "democracy movement," among others. It noted Xiaomi's Mi 10T 5G phones had the software turned off for European customers, but the report stressed the tools could be remotely turned on at any time.

When it came to Huawei's P40 5G phone, the report found risks of cyber-security breaches:

"The official Huawei application store AppGallery directs users to third-party e-stores where some of the applications have been assessed by anti-virus programs as malicious or infected with viruses."

It's crucial to note relations between NATO ally Lithuania and China have deteriorated as of recent. The Baltic country approved Taiwan to open a representative office in Vilnius, the capital, and be named the Taiwanese Representative Office in Lithuania later this year. Beijing soured over the word "Taiwanese" in the name of the office because it contradicts the "One China" policy that Europe and the US follow.

Depends on what you are shopping for. If it is low money items, who cares since expats earn a salary fit for a king/queen here. For higher ticket items, do as always. Research and know what the fair rate it.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
