I found these two posters located near the Bund and outside Meilan Lake in Baoshan district. I have never seen this before, but apparently there are many of them around the city, so keep your eyes peeled and you will surely come across one.
So here’s the deal. These two lovely ladies it appears are married, but to guys who are unable to give them heirs. Distraught at the prospect of the family business dying out with their demise, they seek to find healthy, attractive men, who are under 60 and capable of giving them a child who will carry on the family business.
In return for their services, these ladies will pay (left side) 500,000 rmb, and (right side) 1,000,000 rmb to each guy respectively.
So your are probably thinking there has got to be a catch here as I did (and I am damn sure there is somehow a very serious catch, just haven’t figured out exactly how the catch works yet), well at the top of the post, they list the name of a law firm, and state that they have apparently paid a guarantee of 800,000 and 1,300,000 rmb respectively to the law firms and that certainly makes us all feel so much more confident that this is a legitimate offer.
So I don’t know exactly what the scam is but as we all know, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. If you can enlighten us on what the real deal is here, please do so, I want to know. Of course if there is anyone out there who has actually performed the service, I love to here from you to (wink wink)
Here is a very simple translation of the poster on the right.
Looking For Fate & Sincere
Has a guarantee with a law firm 1.30 million rmb.
She is looking for a guy to give her a baby to allow her and her husband’s
business to continue in the future as her husband can not give her a child.
She is 28, fair skin, 1.65m tall. And she is seeking a sincere attractive guy who is under
She will pay 300,000 rmb up front and the remaining 1,000,000 rmb after she is
This is such a great deal, you get a night with a beautiful woman, and even if you don’t get her pregnant, you get 300,000 rmb – insert (big grin) emoticon here. There is so much sexual innuendo I could have added to this piece, but I decided to refrain.
