A Chinese man in his thirties who wants to adopt a well-educated woman to be his mother is offering $162,000 to the right candidate.
The applicants should be at least 57 years old, well-educated, with no history of drug use and have travel experience abroad.
According to 'ecns.cn', some photos have emerged which show the unidentified man in Fanghu Park, Guanghan in Sichuan province, holding a large red lantern displaying his phone number, a red sign and a basin full of cash.
The man appeared to be in his 30s and the red sign he was holding listed the qualities he is looking for in his adopted mother.
"Whether we have a connection depends on the 'magnetism' between us," read the sign.
Some witnesses claimed the banknotes appeared to be real.
