Before Avengers: Endgame Chinese cinemas show photos of debtors: In the Chinese District of Lishui, Zhejiang Province, instead of advertising before the film “Avengers: Endgame,” they began to show a video with photos of debtors and the results of non-payment of debts.
Why do they do it?
This practice in China has been going on for a year now and usually choose the most popular films. “Avengers” is just one of those, in addition, they are shown in most cinemas.
The court claims that over the past year, about 80 debtors paid when they saw their photos and names on the screen in a movie theater or on billboards.
Law enforcement agencies in China are increasingly using this method to persuade citizens to abide by the law.
However, there is a downside. Some debtors say that this may scare away their potential customers and business partners, which makes it impossible to pay off debts.
