The OP link is self-explanatory relating to the arrests of a Canadian and his friend. You also need to be very aware of these sting operations: http://opnlttr.com/letter/china-visa-police-using-clever-sting-fake-job-ads-arrest-hundreds-foreign-esl-tefl-teachers Lastly, Contrary to what most people believe, you do not need a VPN to access Google in China. There is a trick that IT people know how to access Google indirectly without being detected nor blocked unless you do a search for the New York Times or Epoch Times. We will share this trick with you by PM if you subscribe to this sub as well as r/chinatefl, r/chinascamcentral, r/tefl_tips_traps_scams, and r/chinateachers. The connection secret is free, works 100% of the time but your first connection will take about 2 minutes. Afterward, it will be quicker than any VPN. After you subscribe, contact us with a short message by PM. Until then stay safe and remember… what you read in the OP is dead serious friends.
