If you get a PM at Reddit from a user offering friendly or helpful advice - ignore it. 3 TEFL & ESL teacher recruiters were just caught moonlighting as moderators at Reddit deleting factual posts that were not helpful to their sales. This explains the whole story: https://www.scam.com/showthread.php?739459-Even-More-Reddit-Moderator-Fraud-Helping-TEFL-Job-Scammers-cheat-teachers&p=1973744&posted=1#post1973744

Be aware this does not mean all of Reddit is corrupted. the problem has been located in only 5 subs so far. and a new TEFL sub where censorship is not allowed was opened at http://reddit.com/r/teflscams

Good luck and safe travels!

Actually I stopped asking questions at the r/tefl and r/chinatefl and r/teflblacklist subs at reddit because within 30 minutes of posting any question about working in Korea, China or Japan, I would get at least 5-10 PM from either one of the mods or their cock puppet accounts telling me about great job agents to contact or directly offering some really low-paying job in the boonies of China or Korea paying less than $20,000 a year!

I made the mistake of sending my resume to one of the guys an ever since I am getting spammed to death from blacklisted companies like Foreign HR, Laowai Career, China HR, TEFL.com etc. They reing me duruiing China business hours and do not even apologize for waking me up at 3am!.

These f*cking vultures say they received my resume when I never sent it to them and even though I told them I am not interested in any teaching job that doesn't pay the average salary of 22,000 rmb per month in Beijing or Shanghai - don't bother me, they call me at least 3 times a week with excrement jobs!

Then yesterday, my colleague in Chengdu sent me these links asfter she had a similar experience.https://opnlttr.com/letter/reddit-mods-include-china-job-agents-hiding-truth-about-arrests-foreign-tefl-esl-teachers and this one too https://opnlttr.com/letter/tefl-teachers-uniting-new-reddit-sub-rteflscams-shrink-victim-count-korea-and-china-job-scams

Not all the subs are fuc*ed up. I did find a list of International schools with their contact info at https://reddit.com/r/CFTU and a sub that teaches us how to get our own jobs at https://reddit.com/r/chinateachers. People just need to avoid the three subs above imo.
