FBI Movie Warns Students Going Abroad of Being Drawn Into ‘Game of Pawns’

For American college students, studying abroad is an opportunity to explore a new country, sample a unfamiliar culture, and meet people from very different backgrounds. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation is worried that some of those new friends might actually be foreign spies.

The FBI has produced a new film, Game of Pawns, to warn students of the "possibility that a foreign intelligence service might try to recruit them while abroad to eventually steal secrets from the U.S. government." The half-hour movie is based—somewhat loosely—on the story of Glenn Duffie Shriver, who studied abroad in China and later was induced by intelligence officers there to apply for American government jobs.

In addition to the video, the FBI has created a resource for students abroad, which is at: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/investigate/counterintelligence/student-brochure. Many of the same considerations listed above, would also apply to use of this resource, and any others created by the FBI.
