I have decided to post a warning to foreigners in Kunming about a Chinese woman who has been operating here for quite some time now, after hearing from a friend who was recently cheated out of 10,000 kuai by her(!!!). This con-artist's English name is Jasmine. She trawls the cafes and bars where foreigners hang out looking for people to do modeling and acting gigs and promises good pay. When the job is finished, she either pays much less than promised or not at all and disappears under the rock she crawled out from under until the next time she needs someone to defraud. She has cheated me and several people I know personally in the last two years in Kunming. You can link to her photo here: www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5725919814/
You've been warned!
