Its teatime for Tor and today she wants to tell you about some of the strangest things she has come across in China. Did you know that it is common for people to fake an accident in order to make a financial claim in China? This is called PengCi.
Pèngcí (碰瓷) is a Chinese term referring to the practice of crooked shopkeepers placing expensive, fragile items (usually porcelain) in places where they may easily be knocked over by customers, thus allowing them to collect damages when the items are knocked over by the “clumsy” customer.
The word now has a second meaning to fake a car accident.
