Chinese ethnic American in California shamelessly “scams” his Chinese “compatriots”?


In a confusing scenario, David Li Chen from California seemingly conned  a group of Chinese educators from the Guangdong Province in China into believing the foreign educators owned a public high school in southern California — where the foreign contingent believed they were well on the way to starting an American charter school at the particular site.

Mr. Chen defended himself by saying it was simply a misunderstanding, … but reportedly he also made contradictory and inconsistent statements that seemed to leave the impression that he was not being honest about the whole embarrassing episode. …

In certain financial matters, whether  involving Chinese Americans or other ethnic Americans, it sometimes seems that  those who take the most advantage of any particular ethnic group in the United States of America, are themselves members of the same ethnic group.

Just sayin’.
