Shenzhen girl cheated for sex and money by feigned gao shuai fu

Posted: 05/9/2012 7:00 am

Women around the world tend to like men who are tall, dark, and handsome, and China is no different. In fact, the Chinese translation, “gao shuai fu”, has become quite popular online, so much so that con men are using the term to lure women for sex and money through dating service websites.

According to the Shenzhen Daily, a woman identified as Chen has fallen for such a scam.

In September last year, Chen met a man named Zhang online. Zhang is a middle-aged man who claimed to be divorced with an annual income of RMB300 thousand, multiple properties, and a genuine willingness to remarry. After seeing Zhang’s identification, divorce certificate, and property ownership certificates, Chen started a romantic relationship with him. They had sexual intercourse numerous times, according to Chen, who said she only started to question the credibility of Zhang’s story when she realized that she was carrying most of the financial weight in the relationship. That’s when she called police.

Zhang was arrested in a hotel in Bao’an District, Shenzhen in January this year. When police arrived, they found all of his forged certificates, including two false I.D. cards, one divorce certificate and two property ownership certificates.

During the investigation, police found that Zhang cheated another female victim for sex last year.
