A man who claimed to be instructor at a driving school in Sichuan province sent a female student messages telling her that if she slept with him, he could help her pass her tests.
According to Sohu, Xiao Li (an alias) vented her frustrations on WeChat after she failed her first driving test. Out of the blue, a man surnamed Wang who claimed to be an instructor at her driving school added her on WeChat.
After the two had become friends, Wang initially asked Xiao Li to introduce him more students. Shortly after began sending her messages declaring his love for her and asking her to sleep with him.

Alarmed by the conversation, she decided to find out who this man surnamed Wang really was. After speaking with her own instructor she was told that Wang was his colleague, and that she shouldn’t report anything to the police until after she passes her tests, otherwise she might be failed.
Feeling powerless, Xiao Li reached out to the media for help. Xiao Li and reporters went to the school and talked with the principal, but said that he couldn’t be sure if the person talking to her was the same person as instructor Wang who worked at the school.
Later that evening, the mysterious Wang changed his name to Li on WeChat and posted a different profile picture. Despite having any concrete evidence, Xiao Li went to file a complaint with the authorities. The school eventually agreed to return a portion of her tuition and will designate a female coach to help Xiao Li with her tests.
An investigation into the case is still ongoing.
