A group of Nigerian men are conning young and naive girls into a dangerous drug smuggling operation. They first pose as garment buyers and sellers. They offer the girls 1000-2000 rmb easy money for going to Cambodia to pick up a suitcase of sample garments. The girls are given a round trip plane ticket and a one night stay at a 5 star hotel. When they arrive in Cambodia or Laos or Vietnam or Thailand they have a pre arranged meeting with a Nigerian man posing as a factory rep in the garment industry.They actually get some garments but they are just cheap off the shelf things you can buy anywhere but the suitcase also has a hidden compartment that is filled with heroin. This just happened to a girl I know last week from HouJie,She was given a return flight to Shanghai and her bag was searched at the airport customs where they found 2 kilos of heroin in a hidden compartment of the suitcase. This girl was conned by the Nigerians with money (2000rmb) R/T plane and a 5 star hotel accomodation now she will be executed under Chinas law of over 50 grams that warrants the death penalty.Please tell everyone you know NOT to fall victim to these drug smugglers who offer easy money for delivering sample garments or electronics or any other product that could be shipped by UPS or Fed Ex.This 20 year old girl has a job working at an insurance company in Houjie and knows absolutley nothing about the drug smuggling industry in China. Now she will be put to death for trying to get some easy money for delivering garments. If it looks like its too good to be true it always is.These Nigerians also told the girl that they needed her to deliver the suitcase because they have VISA problems or expired VISAS. Beware oif these Nigerians and dont let anyone especially young girls associate or become involved with these men.

Some of the towns here in the south had their Independence Day celebrations on Saturday, the 4th being on Sunday and what this Church and this being the Bible Belt and all. Some having Celebrations on the Traditoinal 4th. So, best of both I suppose.
