    I’ve read some posts about this organisation and I am getting conflicting information.
    On one hand I have people saying they are legit but poorly organised (I’m assuming this is because they are based in China and the time difference is probably a hindrance) and on the other hand people being extremely cynical saying they are a scam (when I cannot find anything to suggest they are a scam). They seem to work in conjunction with a Chinese government agency but I do not know how much credibility that holds.
    Any information about this company will be greatly appreciated because I have a job offer on the table and I would love to take it and embark on my own China adventure.
    Thank you all in advance.

    Well, for starters this company was never issued a SAIC business license and therefore are not authorized to do business in China – making it yet another one of 3 dozen “Black” China job agencies in China. They are also not registered with neither the Beijing Tax Authority, nor SAFEA (Foreign Experts Bureau) which makes it illegal for them to hire or place foreigners in China jobs, although they can refer a candidate from abroad if they have an overseas office, which at this time they do not.

    You may also want to check the various blacklists maintained by ESLWatch, CFTU, and the China Teachers Alliance and you will find a few complaints. They are also on the “China Liars List” maintained at Scam.com. Use this company at your own peril and only if they sponsor you with a Z Visa BEFORE you land in China.

    For current news about China scams you can check the CFTU or CTA blacklists or visit http://reddit.com/r/chinascamcentral. Remember to read thrice and sign once!
