Fake Gas Stations Pops Up in Sichuan

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

China seems to be the land of fakes, fake clothing, fake merchandise, cloned cars and now fake gas stations. Residents of ?????????? Sichuan Province’s Shui Qing Village in Jiang An County were happy to learn that a Sinopec gas station was opening within their village, but on the opening day they found that it was a fake station with the name changed ever so slightly to make it look like a Sinopec station.

The new station used a slight trick of hand, instead of using the ????? (Zhongguo Shi Hua You) name they used the ????? (Zhong Wei Shi Hua You) name and hoped that so diligent farmers and villagers might not be educated enough to notice that ? (country) and been changed into ? meaning surround.

Local authorities have since stepped in and asked the gas station owners to change the name ASAP, no mention of any potential punishments yet. This is the second time a fake station has popped up in China, a few years ago a fake Sinopec also appeared in Shanxi.
