Hello. I'm a brand-new forum user and am wondering if anyone has received emails from the individual below, as I have today. There is no company email address, and I've searched the Internet. Although there are heaps of Tahir Mehmood links, none corresponds to the person in the email I received. RSVP and thanks!

Had you applied to them previously? If not then I'd definitely give this one a wide berth!

Yes, I did reply to a job opportunity last August, but it was via ESL Jobs. The responses I received then did not contain this Tahir name at all. So, I'm letting this pass. Somehow, this person has gotten a-hold of my email address and info. Darn.
Thank you for your reply.

It's so unnerving when a business doesn't have at least a website in this day and age. In fact I expect most businesses to have a website, a google maps location, a telephone landline, and unless it's new a few user reviews online.

Hello Gentlemen,

I would like to correct the post of Mr. Avtlgn and others

Education Experts is a Saudi Arabian-based company located in Riyadh, the capital. We also have a Jeddah affiliate, English Times, through which earlier recruitment was carried out.
Education Experts Company and English Times are legal Saudi businesses.
Tahir Mehmood, who is quoted in the post, is an employee at Education Experts Company.
We are recruiting for ESL teachers as we have for many years.

Regards,
Musharii Alsubeaei

Dear Musharii Alsubeaei:

Thank you very much for the clarification. I'm sure you can understand and appreciate my initial wariness.

Sincerely,

Do you mind if I ask for what possible reason there wouldn't be a website for any business operating in the 21st century?

I honestly dismiss anything without a site as a scam. In fact even if there is a site and it's not on par with their competition then I still feel doubtful.
