An article that explored groups of young women of modest means who pretend to be rich has made the rounds on social media. According to the article, the women pay to join exclusive WeChat groups, where they split the bill on luxury purchases such as stays in five-star hotels, trips to luxurious tea houses and designer bags, and then post photos on their individual feeds to pass off as their own purchases and activities. Some of the women, the article said, want to project a wealthy lifestyle and are motivated by narcissism, while others use the chat groups as platforms to meet rich men. The article discussed how the women would chip in to attend exclusive events frequented by rich men. Most netizens dismissed them as shallow gold-diggers, while others argued that everybody has the right to aspire to a better life.
