In China, services such as the one she offers are considered illegal. As a result of that, she has always found her cases being thrown out of the courts. What is more is that sometimes all the evidence submitted to the courts somehow get to disappear mysteriously. But before anything, she is said to sometimes persuade the mistresses to leave the men alone.

Because of this, Zhang Yufen who has also been referred to as “China’s number one ladies’ detective” took it upon herself, if her clients want, to find the cheating husband and his mistress and exert revenge on the woman.  Even as she is known as the mistress killer, what she actually does is to beat up the mistress to a pulp and threaten them.

Although she has been able to handle a lot of cases successfully, starting with herself, of course, there are a few that stand completely out. One of such involves a Chinese railway worker whose wife approached the Mistress killer for her services in an attempt to find out who her husband is cheating with. As it would turn out, her husband was actually cheating with as much as 17 women all in different parts of the country.

This case became highly popular as she also found out that the man was involved in corruption and was promoting his relatives indiscriminately in the railway system. Even though the woman who hired the mistress killer was able to get a divorce, the evidence gathered was not used in court.

Another case that she handled was one in which an elderly woman’s daughter took pesticide because her husband was cheating on her. The woman couldn’t take her husband to court since she didn’t have the sufficient evidence, as such they contacted the Mistress Killer.

That said, she still offers her services very cheap for women who have no money to seek legal redress against their cheating husbands.
