It is also very weird that they would want to get a teacher from abroad to go teach English in London :-/ paying for tickets and expenses when they can find teacher right there !!!  ....

Abin Latif Shung - esl recruitment2015 (views: 8196)

Malaysia (Southeast Asia) - Sat, 05 Mar 2016

Abin Latif Shung poses as the Human Resources Manager for Sri Kuala Lumpur School in Malaysia.  He offered me a teaching post at the school with an unbelievable salary and benefits.  When I asked the name and email address for the principal at the school to confirm the offer of employment, his answers became curt, informing me that it is unnecessary to speak to anyone other than himself, since he is the person appointing new staff at th....

Beware of Spammers such as Jiamei Education (views: 4451)

China (Asia) - Wed, 27 Jan 2016

They may have legitimate jobs but since they post/spam the jobs board with 100s of jobs at one time (literally), chances are they are fishing sites for vacant jobs and then trying to find applicants to "sell" to the open positions.  How well can they be screening hundreds of jobs with cut and paste job descriptions. They always use the same email:  Jiamei Education at dorama2015@aliyun.com and then switch to Sally at sall....

Admin Officers/Tutors/Assit lecturers - Wells University Job Offer Scam

Another common scam where they take the school name and create a very convincing ad and even have a website but when you look closely at the email/website, you will see one or two letters missing.  They even made a nice little logo for the university.  Finally, the 120,000 GBP salary per year should be a tip off. Copy of the original ad: Wells University of London is a vibrant learning environment – fostering innovation and creati....

Indonesia (Southeast Asia) - Sat, 05 Dec 2015

We are always surprised when we see job postings for jobs that have nothing to do with teaching...whether it is industrial jobs or web search evaluators.  If they are posting on a teaching site, they are either desperate or lying.  An example (and notice that they don't use a website email but some generic email address...NOT very corporate!): Open Career PT Bumi Resources Tbk 2015/2016 Due to facing fast business growth and expanding o....
