    This appears to be a new company that started to send me job offers. I can find only limited info on them. Their web site is in perfect English so I am assuming they are foreigners? What do you guys know about them?

    Posted in another thread by why not.

    Now you can make it 7! They are now using another new company name called NEW LIFE ESL and they put a foreigner to run the show.

    You can also find more stuff about it at scam.com.

    Hello, this is Derrick Yazwa and I’m one of the owners of New Life ESL.

    We are an independent company made up of three American co-owners living and working in Asia. My partners Monica and Brendan have each been teaching English in China for over three years.

    We have absolutely no connection to Rebecca Tang or China ESL. The post you refer to is absolute nonsense and it all comes from a free WordPress site that was set up at newlifeeslscam.wordpress.com. Have you read this page?

    The English on it is absolutely atrocious. This person could never be hired to teach English in China, they can barely even write something readable. They also use an alias and don’t say who they are. We are pretty positive this was created by a competitor to try to make us look bad.

    On the other hand, we have a ton of reviews from real people on our FB page that can easily be verified. You can also check out NewLifeESLReviews.com to see some reviews from teachers we’ve placed.

    We also are more than happy to give you Skype usernames and email addresses to people that we’ve placed in jobs in China so you can ask them about us directly. So, you can choose to believe nonsense on the internet written by anonymous people who have never even talked to me or anyone at my company, or you can find out the truth. Thanks.

    Hello Mr. Yazwa. Thank you for your reply but I still have some questions about your company and noticed that other people asked you the same questions last month at realscam.com. See this link for details:


    * Where is your company licensed and please give us a license number to check? You are NOT registered in Beijing (I checked with the SAIC) nor in Hong Kong as China Scam Patrol confirmed.

    * Why do you tell your teacher prospects to come work in in China illegally on an L visa when they can get arrested and deported for doing this? It is against the law to work in China on a tourist visa!

    *** MOD EDIT – irrelevant question***

    * How do you build China connections sitting in Phoenix Arizona and where is your company office located in Phoenix. The local BBB says your company does not exist. Can you prove otherwise?

    * Your web site went online over a year ago which proves you have been operating without a license for over a year and the IRS does not even have an Employer ID number for New Life ESL? What is your EIN if you are a legitimate company?

    Questions about contracts, expat labor rights, teachers requirements and visa laws for China are found at http://chinascamwatch.org
