Dear Colleagues,

My flatmate in Beijing just got swindled out of $5,000 and the coppers told her that over 500 English teachers in China are being ripped off every month by the same handful of scam artists. This is a really sneaky and sophisticated scam that even very intelligent peoplefall for. Before you apply for another job in China be sure to read this https://eslwatch.info/en/eslwatch-forum/china/801-beware-fake-job-ads-at-beijinger-eslcafe-echinacities/1368.html and pass it along to your circle of teacher friends.

Remember that China has no BBB nor FTC to help you get a refund. Once you get tricked, you are trapped and there is only one way to get a refund - go to visit a CCTV news reporter!

Welcome to China - the land of 139 variety of noodles and endless scams. I found this at another forum and think it is worth sharing with you guys;

***** I was lured to China to teach and a few years ago and I have to admit there were a lot of things that the recruiters NEVER told me and when I asked certain questions, they changed the subject. After reading the post about the 10 ten lies of ESL recruiters in China, I decided to post these three links to save you all the aggravation and money I went through before I found a safe and genuine employer in China where I was not in danger of being deported. If I had seen these links I would have saved 6 months of my life and earned at least 20,000 rmb more. One of my employers even tried to extort me for 5,000 rmb to get my "release letter" which is needed when you want to upgrade your job. Anyway, this below is knowledge meant to be shared to reduce the number of expat scam victims in China. Now that I have an honest employer and no longer use shady agents, I am content in China except for the air pollution which is horrible during the winter months.

China is a fun place to work if you can avoid the scams and split-shift work schedules. *****
