    Vice Premier Wang Qishan mistakes U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner for a Nigerian prince scammer after Geithner explains to Qishan how China's various continued 'investments' will yield great riches and wealth in return once turmoil has subsided in the Treasure Secretary's native country.
