    The sly scammers almost got me with some great testimonials from shills on FACEBOOK they pay to give “two thumbs up” reviews when you contact them. Actually I did not know I was dealing with Foreign HR until the very end because they use “blind ads” and only at contract time do you really find out who you are dealing with. Any way, I just found out now when my GF just sent me this link 10 minutes ago. http://abroadreviews.com/scam-alert-foreign-hr-haida-hr-gi2c-now-buying-fake-referrals-facebook-cheat-china-job-applicants which got me curious to know more and so I googled them and searched them on Reddit too. Holey Moley! So anyway here are 5 other reasons to put yourself out of their reach as soon as possible no matter what they promise you verbally;

    (1) Foreign HR was recently bought out by an infamous scam artist who pled guilty to fraud in 2014 and went to jail for it

    (2) The same owner operates 12 different alias companies to recruit teachers for China. They are all listed here: https://www.scam.com/entry.php?8810-88-of-TEFL-amp-ESL-Frauds-originate-from-China-Job-Scams-Here-are-Top-20-China-Job-Scams

    (3) She stole 66% of American Teacher Katherine Cox’s salary as documented on ESL Cafe and by China Scam Patrol and this unbelievable contract with one of the alias companies (China ESL). https://myalbum.com/album/Qt6TWGP0olx3

    (4) Foreign HR is now blacklisted by CTA, CFTU, CSP and ESLWatch

    (5) Their sales reps tell you to lie on your visa application and that there is no problem to work without a Z visa or a degree because they will help you buy both when you come to China on an illegal visa they arrange for you!


    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.

    These are great reasons IMO. I was screwed a couple of years ago in China but not by this woman. In fact I got screwed in China before I even got here by an identity thief posing as a job recruiter. Another day when I have the time and energy I will tell the whole story. For now I will just say that not all the scammers in China are Chinese and those that are should not be trusted if they only give you some half-English/half-Chinese name like “Vivian Li” or “Bobby Chen”.
