A city in east China is naming and shaming stubborn debt defaulters by showing their faces and personal information on large billboards at public bus stops.
The 'wall of shame' was set up by the Fuyang Yingquan People's Court in Anhui province in June as part of a move to guilt borrowers who have failed to pay off debts in legal cases.
The new tactic has proven to be effective so far - at least one offender had come forward and paid up, according to the court in a news release.
