Adverts have recently been posted by someone claiming to represent Westfield School in Newcastle upon Tyne. This is the latest in the "poor wesbite imitation and dodgy domain name" category of scams (see here and here, for other examples).
West Field School is providing vacancies in the following post:
Fine Arts Teacher
Introduction Technology Teacher
Home Economics Teacher
Gardener (Unskilled , no academic qualification required)
1. A Google search for the phone number returns results of adverts selling mobile phones, among other things.
2. The website is clearly a poor imitation of the genuine school’s website, http://www.westfield.newcastle.sch.uk
3. The website has a .tl extension – why does a school in the UK have a website with an East Timor extension?
4. The email address is a free account, rather than matching the school’s domain
