    There is now an unethical, criminal and inhumane crisis created by greedy TEFL job recruiters that is shamefully cheating innocent Chinese school children out of a real education (with fake teachers) and causing young people seeking a new life or adventure in China to become arrested, jailed, and deported with criminal records. Enough is enough! It is time to expose all those who care only about placement fees and profits from selling fake uni degrees, phony TEFL certificates, and black visas. We need the victims to step forward, even anonymously to expose all those who put you in harm’s way.

    Granted, you may not be able to get your money back but at least you can prevent fellow foreigners from falling into the same trap. Perhaps if you ring the alarm bell loud and long enough those who cheated you may have second thoughts about a refund or paying your legal fees. Even if they continue to ignore you, others will be saved from the same grief.

    Those abroad talk now on Skype with the unlicensed recruiters still do not know…

    90% of China employers are honest and ethical but 90% of China job agents and recruiters are not. They do not know about “The Silent Scam” or why Chinese use Chinglish names, or anything about China’s visa laws.

    Nigerian scams are easy to spot, but Chinese scams are not! Also, the biggest scammers in China are foreigners preying upon other fellow-foreigners using China as a shield from their homeland law enforcement authorities. 48% of all expats working in China reported being cheated at least once in 2016 CTA survey and the average loss was $5,700. More than 80% of the problems come from job agents and recruiters who lie about the legal requirements to work in China or persuade new inbound expats to lie on their visa applications, or to buy fake university degrees or TEFL certificates to get a great-paying job – only to be switched to a crappy job after they arrive in China.

    Thank you for the great links CSP. Your website is also very informative and made me aware of a lot of scams I never would have seen. Some of the traps are obvious but I found 7 at your website that I would easily fall for. How to subscribe to your newsletter, or better still, why not publish it every month here at ESLbase?

    Good post CSP. I already sent your link to the 129 teachers in my We Chat group. Keep up the good work.


    Before applying for teaching jobs in China be sure to review http://chinascamwatch.org and the r/ChinaTEFL sub at Reddit so you don’t get screwed.
