Some lost items can be recovered!


Recommended Posts

This is why I always get the 发票 when I take a taxi (and why I always look back before closing the door). Never needed it, but 万一 I do, I know which exact taxi it was.

It's to hear that it's possible. I was even told by some Chinese people "once it's gone, it's gone". Having lost a phone in the back of a taxi myself and never been able to get that back, as there are a lot of taxi in Shanghai of the same colour...but kudos whoever managed it. 


I've very rarely (myself) seen petty theft in the street like that, so it's great the police where able to get it back - I didn't know there would normally be able to do that? If you speak to Chinese people the general respect and esteem held for the police force is very very low. They seem mainly to arbitrate petty disputes at car crash sites and to handle small disturbances, sometimes getting involved themselves, so they aren't the most trusted brand of the government.
