(Clearwisdom.net) An American calling card company owner told Falun Gong practitioners that lately, officials from the Chinese Consulate frequently show up trying to get his company to provide them with card buyers' identities, using threats, bribes and other such means. They said that someone in America had "disturbed" some concerned officials in China using phone cards and hinted that Falun Gong was the cause. This person knows the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution, and did not cooperate with the official's attempt at spying. He told the Chinese Consulate's representative sternly, "This is America, not China. Doing what you ask would be against American law and will get a person thrown in jail. Besides, there are thousands of people calling China everyday. Even if all of you in the Consulate come to do this, you couldn't do it."

The owner kindly advises Falun Gong practitioners that when buying a calling card, it is best to check and see if the company has Chinese government backing before providing personal information.
