We met a few students who approached us with "Hey! Can we talk to you for five minutes?" Given that we were offered fake Rolexes, cheap laser pointers (which we bought after some haggling) and invitations to Lady Bars, I was apprehensive. We ended up at a tea house visiting for a while. Both were language students from Tsingtao and had an impressive knowledge of current events in the US.

We later learned that this is a common scam and we were DUPED! A few students strike up a conversation, suggest tea, and take you to an overpriced teahouse to earn a kickback. Little rats!
