    Foreign teachers wanting or planning to teach in China are hereby advised of the following to better prepare you for your experince:

    1) The blacklist of China’s most dishonorable schools known to regularly cheat their own teachers has increased to 302 in 2013 representing a 12% increase. However, almost all the problems are associated with private schools and kindergartens owned by local Chinese. The vast majority of public schools, public universities, an dinternational schools are legitimate and for the most part honorable. To keep things in perspective, there are over 19,000 schools operating in China today. Our blacklist and whitlelist can be viewed at this link:

    2) The list of shady agents and recruiters has also increased to 57 in 2013 and they can also be viewed at the same link above. We strongly urge all foreign teachers considering the China option to visit and read the many notices and alerts posted at http://www.ChinaScamBusters.com. and suggest that you avoid using agents for several reasons explained here: http://www.cleverchinacheaters.com/2012._._.traps.html

    Be advised there are over 7,000 agents and recruiters operating abroad and in China and only 362 of them are licensed and registered to do business in China. Roughly half of them are identity thieves posing as recruiters. Good luck and safe journey!

    Thanks for the great links. I learned more in the last hour about the real deal of teacher’s salaries and agents than over the last year. Things that happened to me make a lot of sense to me now.

    Also, I found 7 addresses every expat teacher in China should have in case they get screwed over. I found them at this link and for some reason I cannot cut and paste them here. I suggest everyone save these addresses and I hope you never need them!

    Actually no. But I am tired of agents and schools posing as teachers using forums to advertise and lure expat teachers into teaching and visa scams.
