December 18th, 2010 by Key | Posted in Life Style, News | 14 Comments Â»
CNcard.com reports on December 18, early December, Xiao Li who just graduated from a university in Changchun found a tempting advertisement on the Internet. â€œThe ad said that there will be a â€˜dating events for the rich and the powerfulâ€™ (富豪相亲会) in Changchun, I called the number and was told that all the men have money and high status, wanted to recruit quality girls to meet them.â€� Xiao Li said he was skeptical when first communicated with the organizer. After the organizer learned Xiao Liâ€™s situation, they began to â€œput their cards on the tableâ€� said, the men at the dating event may not necessarily marry the girl, â€œwill first try to get along, if feels right then will be together.â€�
According to information provided by Xiao Li, the reporter found the forum in Changchun that released this message. â€œDating event for the rich and the powerfulâ€� wanted: college education or above (college students ok), female, single, have normal facial features, graceful, pretty and taller than 1.60 meters. Each manâ€™s asset is over 2 million yuan. Organizer: Changchun Yifeng private club (长春宜丰私人会所), telephone 13251842xxx, contact Ms. Li.
In order to get to the bottom of this, journalist pretended to be a girl applying for this recruitment.
Mid-December, (male) reporter contacted Ms. Li, but later found out Ms. Li was actually a man. He very directly asked the report if he â€œwants to Baoyang oneâ€�. (包养: [bāoyǎng] to keep; to provide financial support and housing for someone of the opposite sex but not the lawful spouse.) The reporter asked what kind of girls they provided, he said, â€œwe provide monthly (girls).â€� The man from â€œChangchun Yifeng private clubâ€� claimed that he â€œhad been in this industry for a long time.â€� He was going to introduce a â€œvery niceâ€� girl to the reporter. He said, â€œa newly graduated female student, she has super nice body, and wants to look for someone rich.â€� The man said, he can arrange the rich to meet the girls, in terms of how to â€œkeepâ€� her, how much money, will be determined by the two parties. But the rich man will pay him 3000 yuan service charge for a successful deal.
In the conversation, the reporter also tried to ask the details on how to â€œkeepâ€� (Baoyang) the girl, but the middle man did not want to say more, only stressed â€œspecifically about how much money you have to negotiate with the girl, I am only responsible for the arrangements.â€�
The middleman said the girls he has right now have various â€œkeeping limitsâ€� â€œOne month is short-term, some customers keep one for one year, some even three years, varies depends on the person.â€� Middleman said, men who come here are all not short of money.
Most importantly, the middleman also mentioned, once the â€œBaoyangâ€� relationship is established, two parties must sign an agreement. The content of the agreement â€œis up to both of you to decide, for example, she cannot interfere with your family and so on.â€� We also will sign another confidentiality agreement with the man, to not to disclose this â€œBaoyang secretâ€�.
Since the club provides beauties to men, then what kind of requirement does the club have for the girls? One day in mid-December, a female reporter pretended to be a university teacher and contacted the club.
On the phone, it was the same middleman, he refused to meet up but presented many information about the dating service. The man said, his private club introduced memberships; only men with power and strong finial background were able to join. He said he can arrange the girl to meet the rich man, and all expenses will be paid by the male members.
â€œWe are making money from these men. Now there are many (rich) who are married but also looking for a girlfriend or something, for three four years for how much money, and then sign an agreement. This kind of â€˜datingâ€™ is the majority; about 90% is like that.â€� Middleman told the reporter to not dream about finding a boyfriend to get married, because â€œ90% of them are looking for a mistress, only very few are not married.â€�
The middleman said, club has been operating for over 6 months, and success rate is very high. â€œMost of them are university students, or girls who work with some kind of financial securities.â€�
December 14, at noon, after much undercover work, the middleman finally introduced our female reporter to a â€œsuperb rich manâ€�. On the phone, reporter and the man agree to meet in front of the Workers Cultural Palace.
The reporter waited for 10 minutes, a 40 some year looking man wearing a down jacket carrying a bag walked up to her.
When reporter asked whether he was as advertised a CEO of some company, he did not answer the question directly. He said that he knew about Yifeng private club through a friend. He also said that he is not single but refused to talk about his family. He is not a club member, a friend of his found out that that he wanted to look for a girlfriend and introduced him the service. After paying 1000 yuan to the club, he already met with several other girls, but none of them met his standards.
On that day, the female reporter and the rich man talked for one and a half hours. The man talked a lot, but did not reveal much of his identity. From the conversation, the man was very pleased with the reporter, because he said he usually do not talk for long if he was not interested.
The man said, this kind of club is not to be trusted, because the real rich will not find girlfriends through this way, and also no one would tell others about the real amount of their assets.
When leaving the restaurant, the man was very alert, kept looking back. Since then, the reporter has been receiving text messages from the club, asking if what she thought of this â€œcompany executiveâ€�, and whether if the date was successful.
Reporter also found out from â€œMs. Liâ€�, â€œChangchun Yifeng private clubâ€� not only recruits â€œbeautiesâ€� to date rich men, also is advertised for â€œmarriage investigation, business investigation, finding professionals, competitive intelligence analysis and other special investigations.â€� At the same time the advertisement said, â€œNo matter if you a business leader or government official, as long as you want to keep (Baoyang) a beautify college girl, then contact us. We guarantee success, all with college education or above, or in college students, high quality and well-educated.â€�
â€œChangchun Yifeng private clubâ€� is the middleman matchmaking rich men with mistresses, is this legal?
Director of Fahui law firm in Jilin, Qiu Deming said, this kind of dating service is using a legitimate form to cover up illegal purposes, and profiting from activities in the scope of introducing sex trade and prostitution. â€œFor sure it is illegal, not only it destroys marriage and family, it also damages social order. An it also should be condemned at the moral level. This business is destructive because it may induce other forms of crimes and even more serious social conflicts. It is worse than open prostitution, and should be absolutely banned.â€�
