    Hi, I'd like some advice on how to scam a scammer.  A couple of years ago I got rooked into the classic teahouse scam by a couple of young women around Tiananmen.  I had my guard up but these two were SO SMOOTH.  Plus, I thought young Chinese women only scammed foreign men.  Anyway, I got taken for about 350 RMB.

    Now I have acquired the email and phone number of one of them and I want to set up a sting.  Any suggestions?

    Hahahaha ... 350, a few years ago? So on a daily average basis, you have paid maybe three maos (30 cents RMB) per day for that lesson, that's not really a bad rate, except that you have not seemed to have learnt anything ...

    Joking aside ... what do you expect to achieve by scamming them?

    Instead of "scam", maybe you could play a prank ... no idea about this yet, but assuming they are still in the same business, they are likely to be smarter than a few years ago, and my concern is if you might lose another 350 (or worse) ...

    Decide to meet them in a far off place.. if they live in south beijing, ask to meet them in north beijing or far out east/west, then you just don't bother to show up, they have to spend half a day in public transport or about 100 rmb on taxi for nothing.. if you can get them to meet you in the evening, that's even better, set a time just about when the subway is about to close so they must take taxi home :)
