China warns of Singapore scams amid tourism controversy
In this case, China is warning its citizens to stay away from Singapore.
"An advisory posted on China's Consular Services website noted that there
had been "many cases last year" where Chinese tourists were cheated when
buying electronic goods.
It said that Chinese tourists who wish to buy mobile phones or other
expensive electronic devices in Singapore should first check if the shops
they are patronizing have had complaints lodged against them."
This is only mentioned because of the ongoing US Navy scandal involving
Singapore's Glenn Defense Marine Asia - "the husbanding firm at the center
of one of the Navy's biggest bribery scandals in decades."
