You might think you’ve got hustle, but there’s no one who has more hustle than this Chinese woman who used her boy-mongering powers for the ultimate con: buying herself a house.
A blogger wrote about her anonymous friend who, for the purposes of her post she called Xiaoli, had 20 different men wrapped around her finger. She pestered each of the men to get her the pricey gift of a brand spanking new iPhone 7.
And then sold them all to buy a house in China, which is currently a tough buyer’s market.
“[Xiaoli] is not from a wealthy family. Her mum is a housewife and her dad is a migrant worker, and she is the oldest daughter. Her parents are getting old and she might be under a lot pressure hoping to buy them a house… But it’s still unbelievable that she could use this method!”
The story went viral on the popular Chinese site Weibo, where the “20 mobiles for a house” hashtag is trending. The blogger was amazed that Xiaoli has so many boyfriends.
“I can’t even find one boyfriend. She can actually find 20 boyfriends at the same time and even get them to buy her an iPhone 7. Just want to ask her to teach me such skills.”
People on the site are actually praising Xiaoli for her resourcefulness in such a tough economic marketplace.
Other people are calling her “shameful” for leading the men on and using their generosity for her own financial gain.
But she’s got herself her own house. And 20 dudes who each bought her an iPhone 7. So haters can hate all they want. (h/t complex)
