Read the above link which speaks for itself. About seven weeks ago I visited with (Name removed) in Shang Di (near Wudaokou in Beijing) about enrolling in some classes. One of the young girls in the office told me they were "part of the Ministry of Education". Judging from the looks of their office, I could not believe that claim.

So I contacted the Ministry of Education and a woman named Wei Li told me that (Name removed) was a private company and had no affiliation with the Ministry of Education and was definitely not part of the MOE.
Read the link above and warn all your friends and family back home. There are other links about them at "ComplaintsBoard.com" going back to 2011 and 2012 as well.

Also it doesn't matter which university you apply for, it seems you will only get accepted by the 10 universities that pay (name removed) .a commission! So they collect a hefty fee from the student applicant (through their partner company (Name removed) AND also commissions from the universities. If this is not a scam I don't know what is.

Now within a day or two, ten fake "customers" (shills) will probably come here and reply with BS testimonial posts telling us how great (Name removed) is. Even the online "reviews" of this company are fake - bought and paid for, or hosted on their own sister web sites.

I wish I saw this warning last year. They already screwed me and my sister out of a bunch of fees and deposits we had to pay to (Name removed) They created this second company so that they can legally say that (Name removed) charges no fees. They are all crooks and not to be believed. I just searched them again now on Google and there are no less than 10 warnings but I never saw any of them until after we got burned. Timing is everything. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=4593050&p=70403722#post70403722
