if you lost in the airport, you can only contact the airport.

I left 2 cameras in the back of a taxi yesterday in Beijing, I took the taxi from the king wing hotel to Beijing airport terminal 2 at around 3pm and arrived at the airport at 4pm. I've contacted the police and there seems nothing they can do as i don't have the number of the taxi, I also contacted lost and found at the airport. If anyone by any chance comes across these please contact me on 18001629655. There is a reward for the return of these items. Large canon camera in bag and small camera in pink cover. Thank you

No I never...:-(
Is there anyway I can put up a notice in Beijing offering a reward?.

Vivien :10/14/2012 6:51:32 PM

Did you ask for the receipt when you get off? If so, there should be information of the taxi on it.

This company in China is a fraud, be careful when you order Chemicals from them.

This is regarding the online purchase of electronic good from chinese web site called "www.ozlmsql.com", which shows the branded electronic goods at very cheap prices as compared to international market.
One of my friend suggested me this site had told me to check out the prices of branded products like Apple laptops etc, which i did.
After going through the web site, the product prices looks lucrative to me, and i contacted the website, which offer 24x7 online service, through email/chat.
i asked them about the prices and the products;" why these are so cheap as compared to international market, and he(company rep) said, they bought these product direct from manufacturer so these are cheap.
All the cost of the products is in US $. So i decided to buy Apple Macbook Pro from this website, which they offered for US$ 321 + US$ 40 for postage.
So after receiving some satisfactory asnwers and emails i planned to buy the product and i transfered money online to their account, bank details are there on their website.
After they received the payment they told me to buy 2 more products, which they said is their minimum requirement. ( which they never told me before ( that information is only visible if you get registered with them)) when i asked them why he didn't told me before, he said " he thought (may be pretended) that I already knew this", which i declined and get registered with them.
After registering they told me to buy 2 more products minimum of mora than pastage value i.e US$ 40, so i decided to buy one digital camera (US$ 50) and a ipod (US$103) + (US$40+US$40) for individual postage price. after which he assured me to get the product in 5-7 days.
So i transferred more money to his bank account.
After he received money, he told me to wait for couple of hours to get the tracking code.
After 1-2 days I asked them to provide me the details of tracking code.
And he said the products are with chinese customs and they are awaiting the products to be released, for which I needs to pay Euro 120. which he never told me in any of his emails, i specifically asked them before "is there any thing else which I need to pay or take care of" and they said 'theres nothing"

i was astonished to hear this, and said " you never told me this before and I am not going to pay a single cent. I need my products or my money back" I asked him " how come the Chinese custom is invlved in this" I had paid the postage price, so its your responsibility to send the products to me by anu means", which he declined and said I have to pay if I want my products.
In the last mail, i simply declined to pay any more money to them, and said I ma going legal against them.
the total money which i send to them is

US$ (321+40+50+40+103+40) = 594 which is approx NZ$ 715.41

Thanks you

i think you need to contack the Lost and Found center of the airport.

On Sunday 6th of November, from Wudaikou to Sanlitun, I lost my violin in a taxi. I didn't keep a receipt or get the taxi number but have reported it to the police and made a call on taxi radio station reporting the loss. It is made by an old English maker called Simpson and is in a bright yellow case. Please send me an email if you see anything as it has great sentimental value. Thank you - adrian9leung@hotmail.com

Hi Adrian,
you can report it to the Lost and Found center of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bereau.

We left a carry on bag at the security check at the Beijing Airport in Terminal 2. Our guide was able to verify the luggage was in lost and found. Unfortunately, we left the City and back home. Is there a way to have request the bag sent to my home?

Sandy :9/8/2011 7:29:03 PM

hi Norm,
you can call the lost and found center in the airport. the number is +86 10 64530030.
if your guide is in Beijing, you can ask your him/her to claim the bag for you, you need to provide the photocopy of your passport, a letter of authorization bearing your signature. and your guide also need to take his/her id card or passport.

To Whom It May Concern,
I am sending this email regarding my son’s camera.
After participating in a Chinese language program between 6/13 and 8/10/11 and traveling to various places, including Ningxia, Henan and inner Mongolia, he took the #27 bus (around 1:30pm) and the #675 from Huayuanqiao East station to Nanluoguxiang on 8/7/11. My son, who still had his red Sony DSC T 900 that morning, realized its absence when arriving at the Nanluoguxiang station. Losing over 1000 pictures of this memorable trip has been quite a shock for him. Is it possible to find it through this site?
