    The list of warning signs is long:

    1. Fairly obviously bad English
    2. The address repeats "Ealing" and the postcode – UK addresses do not work like this!
    3. The email address is a free account, rather than matching the domain happychild.co.uk
    4. On the genuine school’s website, http://www.happychild.co.uk, there is no mention of the vacancies being advertised
    5. The sentence containing "…and also located at" on the first line of the advert is suspiciously similar to a sentence in the scam posted about here.
