police officer in Guangdong province has been praised for going above and beyond the call of duty while educating the public about not falling for online dating scams.
In a short video produced by the police department of Shunde district in Foshan city, the young policeman is transformed into a “beautiful woman” with the help of a wig, make-up, and women’s clothing.
After posing a bit for the camera, his wrists are then put into handcuffs by another officer who warns to take extra care when dating online and not fall for any catfishing scams. The clip has been viewed more than 6 million times with many netizens asking the officer for some beauty tips.
“He’s so pretty it’s making me jealous, and I’m a woman!” wrote one Weibo user
Scams involving men pretending to be beautiful women and defrauding gullible guys out of their money are widespread in China. More impressive is those who manage to keep the charade up until after marriage.
