2005: Under direction from Chinese intelligence officers, Glenn Duffie Shriver
applies to the State Department for a job as a Foreign Service officer.
Although he fails the Foreign Service exam, PRC officers give him
$10,000 for his "friendship” and will eventually encourage him to apply
to the CIA.
"To a recent college graduate, $70,000 seemed like a lot of money, and
the promise of even more was too tempting for Shriver to pass up. What
he didn’t consider, though, were the long-term costs of his actions,
which included, as one FBI investigator put it, 'throwing away his
education, his career, and his future when he chose to position himself
as a spy for the PRC.'" - FBI Press Release warning of foreign intelligence efforts to recruit Americans studying abroad, 14 April 2014.
