Please be cautious of improper requests for money from suspicious persons dressed as ground staff

A number of incidents have occurred recently of suspicious persons dressed as ground staff approaching passengers at Beijing Capital International Airport, and making improper demands for money on the pretext of providing assistance with check-in.

The suspicious persons’ technique is to offer to look after a passenger’s boarding pass, passport or baggage. They accompany the passenger through the check-in process, then make the following demand on the way to the boarding gate, “You must pay me for helping you check-in. If you don’t pay, I won’t return your passport and boarding pass.” We have received reports of such improper demands for money.
