(Undated) -- The FBI is warning American students in China about friendly, generous locals who could be recruiting spies. A 30-minute video on the FBI website is a fictionalized version of what happened to an unemployed American named Glenn Shriver who moved to Shanghai after he finished college. Shriver accepted about 70-thousand dollars over five years from people with ties to the Chinese government, then tried to get a job with U.S. intelligence agencies. He pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide national defense information to the Chinese and is serving a four-year prison sentence.
