Beauty Swindle

On summer days, you may see some sales standing in the street, encouraging you to try their “free” beauty products by giving you a little fan as a present. Please be aware this may be a trap when you follow one of the sales to experience the beauty treatments. As they claim to help checking your account balance by inserting your card into the post machine, a hundred Yuan maybe taken out from your account.

Have a safe trip in Guangzhou.
