    I have now had confirmation that this is definitely a fraud. Following are the details sent to me by one of our visitors/users about Asia Recruitment Agency (ARA):
    The person advertising calls himself Christian Philips. This so called agency is a scam and asks prospective teachers to deposit 20,000THB returnable deposit for visa etc. The scam is very good and very convincing and contact is maintained even after you have sent them the money. However when I arrived in Bangkok, their phone wasn't answered or was on answerphone/call back and they do not any longer respond to emails. As I arrived in Bangkok I decided to visit their office and found it doesn't exist.

    Behavior like this sickens me and it frustrates me that little will be done by the individual country's authorities to prevent these types of individuals. I find this happens many times to unwitting/trusting westerners looking to either (1) move to/work in Asia or (2) vacation in Asia. Some, like my friends that recently visited, tend to take individuals at face value and having a trusting nature because they have never come in contact with the level of deception practiced by some. This naiveté is not a good idea when abroad. That is why it is a good rule, whether the company (or individual) is legitimate/established or unknown, to never send money for the promise of employment regardless of the reason and view any offer with objective cynicism (but no need to be rude or hostile).
