    Since 2008, teaching English in China has become a lucrative profession or a virtual nightmare depending on whether or not you are able to evade the many scams that target foreign teachers, especially the new arrivals. If you do not have time to read the many China scam reporting sites, at least take 5 minutes to know who to avoid when looking for your next teaching job in China.

    Always do your due diligence at https://ruqqus.com/+ChinaTEFL and check the CFTU’s white and blacklist before applying for new jobs to be safe – not sorry.

    The link that OP gave is a bit outdated. The problem is that although all 20 of those scammers are still cheating teachers left and right the problem is that these 20 people know they have been exposed and started using a bunch of alias names! So now there are more than 100 different names being used to lure you into their traps so if you want an updated warning list go to Reddit and visit these subs…

    You can also go to Ruqqus and visit the /+TEFLBlacklist guild. There may be others as well but these are the ones I use to stay out of the spider’s web. Happy New Year to all of you, wherever you may be teaching.


    99% of online TEFL courses are scams so be sure to check https://reddit.com/r/TEFLscams before you send strangers your money
