Fake or no fake?
I've received the following picture several times during the last fews days.
It is obviously a Beijing branch of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China. As the sign states, the "male" branch is on Beichen Rd. 北辰路， which - with a little research - actually is Beichen East Rd. no. 8 北辰东路8号汇欣大厦1层, phone number is 84980594.
I am asking a favor of you Beijing netizens! Could anyone of you venture out and take a large size picture of it to make sure this is not a fake?
If this turns out to be real, I'll get in touch with them and will further report on this matter here on Chinglish.de.
Hope to hear from a helping hand real soon!
Update Aug 15:
My private eye Silvano took a picture of the branch plate this afternoon. He writes:
In front of the bank there were a whole bunch of old people, men and women, supposedly all stock holders, waiting for the door to open. At 8:30, the sun was already glaring. Note that the two plates differ drastically. My guess is that there has been a replacement.Looks like they've figured it out themselves. So it's hard to tell whether or not "male service" was genuine. Many thanks, my friend!
