Thieves are using a new technique to clear the Chinese tourists’ pockets coming in French capital with a lot of money: “beautiful blondes” approach them and gain their trust, then leave them empty-handed, warns the Chinese embassy in France.

China’s diplomatic representation has officially warned of this new pocketing robbery in Paris: “Attention to the beautiful blondes in Paris,” the embassy warns, and gives an example. A “Chinese tourist who strayed on the Champs-Elysees was approached by a nice blonde and left him without a cell phone and wallet,” informs Franceinfo in a report. “This is a new trick used by thieves to steal Chinese tourists who are known for visiting the capital of France with a lot of money on the spot “.

The latest violent act against Chinese tourists took place two years ago, when a group of tourists “were attacked with tear gas.” However, the number of Chinese tourists does not seem to fall in Paris: “More than a million visited the capital of France last year, four times more than ten years ago,” notes Franceinfo.
