SCAM ALERT...As posted on "eslemployment" and other sites...

**WARNING! Do not reply to any Europe (esp. Spain) teaching listings found here or on "globalesljobs," or others referring to the fictitious "hiring Manager" Antonia Rodriguez, or providing any hotmail, yahoo, or gmail contact address, esp. one to "mayorvampiro" at the hotmail address. These listings are all fraudulent and the schools are fake!!

**The Santo Domingo-based website "globalesljobs" is a clone of the now shut-down site "paidesljobs," each registered by a "Harry Graber." The new site also promises that ESL/EFL teachers will have access to job listings in Europe after payment of an "access fee."

**The online testimonials are fake, the job listings don't exist, and if you pay the fee to this shadowy company, forget ever seeing your money or any results. The "live representative" who emails candidates back online asserts that most schools in Europe don't require teachers to have EU passports, incorrect information and a warning sign itself. The site is filled with typographical errors and made-up comments by teachers who don't exist. Sad

**BEWARE!! Below is the lastest "eslemployment" listing of the fake schools in Spain:

Please note that the deadline for applications is the 25th of january. We need two English teachers in Barcelona and one other teacher in Madrid. The salry is very competitive and we provide the teacher with free accommodation within walking distance from school. Please send your inquiry/resume to mayorvampiro at hotmail dot com

We will help the teacher to organize the work permit prior to arriving here. The teacher is requested to teach young learned between 5 and 15 years of age at regular school hours. We are lookign forward to get to know you.

Your Antonia Rodriguez
Hiring Manager

Hello Tesoljobseeker

Welcome to the forum.

We had suspected that they were a scam and therefore, we had asked them for their business address and telephone number and the names of the schools in question but had not, as yet, received a reply.

Thanks for the heads-up. We will delete the advertisement.
