In Chinese cinemas before the session "Avengers" show photos of debtors

In the Chinese district of Lishui, Zhejiang province, instead of advertising before the screening of the film "Avengers: Endgame", they began

show a video with photographs of debtors and the results of non-payment of debts.

Why do it

This practice has been going on in China for a year now andusually the most popular films are chosen. “The Avengers” is one of these, and besides, it is shown in most cinemas. The court says that over the past year, about 80 debtors paid after seeing their photos and names on movie theater screens or on billboards. Law enforcement agencies in China are increasingly using this method to persuade citizens to obey the law.

However, there is also a flip side to the coin. Some debtors say this can scare off their potential clients and business partners, making it impossible to repay their debts.
