A VERY POPULAR CON TO TOURISTS VISITING TIAN´ANMEN SQUARE, AND CHINESSE AUTHORITIES DO NOTHING

I wish describing my experience in Pekin holidays in order to avoid any potential tourist to be cheated as I was, and, at the same time, reporting a confidence trickster Chinese gang.
Tian´anmen Square, 2013 October 25 th.
A couple of Chinesse women (con women hooks) came to me pretending to be tourists from North China and speaking in a fluent English and some Spanish as well.
After a very good trained and practiced close up, they are getting my friendship and confidence.
After a long conversation they proposed to have a coffee together in the way to the Forbidden City, as they are visiting this site and indicating you the way in.
They get into a Bar with separated stances and had no even a bathroom. After ordering a coffee, one of then left and came back with three glasses of wine. They offer you one and, just when you drink a single gulp, you have just fallen into a con.
A few minutes later a waiter (fraudster, member of the gang and promoter of the con) brings the bottle of wine and the order list. It is a label of French wine that even was not opened in front of you and the price is about 500 €.
You advise you did not order it, the hook con women are apparently very surprised and they ask you to invite them, too expensive for them!.
You cannot even avoid paying a third, as you have drunk (although a single gulp and by their invitation). Mafia waiter says you must pay at least a third, showing you the menu with abusive prices. It is possible wine had some additive according to the headache (may be this gang is also playing with your health).
Waiter asks for your visa card. A nasty and dirty bar, even without a bathroom and serving wines over 500 € worth, could get about 150 € from you in this shared and improvised con-breakfast.
The hook con women seemed very solvent, they pretend to be amazed yet. Afterwards, they leave the bar with you and get lost in a few minutes whilst you are wondering how a single gulp has damaged you so much.
Waiter tries to avoid giving your visa card receipt, you will have to go and fetch it. After women come back to the Bar for their commission. If you refuse to pay something, as they are pure mafia, you will be obliged to pay anyway. Police do not understand you and avoid intervening, I imagine why.
So, I advise tourists visiting this area, Forbidden City and Square, there are many hooks con women and thieves, pure mafia with the tolerance of Chinese authorities that avoiding even understand your complaints.
I attach the gang member´s photos who broke my trip Budget. The business name is:
BEI JING DA SHAN QING CHA GUAN.
