As a rule of thumb, never trust anyone or anything.

In Germany, my wife misses Chinese post offices and couriers. Their service is way better, because of fierce competition. Western postal services are slow, complicated and not service-oriented. If there were chinese-style couriers, we'd prefer them.

I should know that in about a month as I had China Post to deliver a ten kg. package to my home country. Hopefully it will arrive. I was surprised to be given a number tag to geolocate the package on it way to the destination. Hopefully it will be delivered as planned.

My only experiences are international and Jd.com shopping. International shipments are stalled or even stopped by customs. They simply hold it or take it. 

When it comes to local shipping, if they damage your package they will ignore you and never contact you or deliver your package (childish)

Christmas parcels from Scotland arrive in Feb. Easter eggs in August.

The AR15 I ordered from Floridaguns.com never arrived.

But to be honest, I wish Chinese customs would ban the importation of the home knitted jumpers my sister sends to us.

Mine, too! I always received parcels delivered by China Post or by private couriers.

I used Yunda few times to send packages abroad and they always delivered everything on time.

A:My advice? Keep in your lane. If you know teachers who are working illegally, it would be them that suffer should you report the school. Wouldn't it be better to have a quiet word wqith the teachers, find out there situation, and help them out? There are many reasons people find themselves working illegally. Some intentional, some not. The non-intentional ones have been tricked and are the victims. Help them find a way to get legal employment.If you are working without Z-Visa, Working Residence Permit, and Foreigners Work Permit for the job and location, you don't have an enforcable contract.. You may be lucky in having an employer who does exactly what they promised in the contract, but why take the risk?Without an enforcable contract Chinese Employment Laws don't protect you. Get legal if you can, and if you can't know the risks. We shouldn't do anymore than try to give meaningful advice - as the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water..."Now, on the Native/Non-Native Issue. Yeah, it's shitty. There are many, many, many great ESL teachers who are non-natives, including Chinese teachers. Hell, I know enough great Local Teachers who are wonderful with their students and whose English is more than adequate to teach it. But clients don't pay the equivelant. This is market driven, clients pay premium for Foreign Teachers That's the reality and why many training centres scam both the teachers and the clients. Caveat Emptor. Reporting the schools will just get some teachers in trouble.Sure, some teachers have eyes wide open and know that they are running the risk. Not my problem, their choice is their problem. If schools employing illegals bother you, it's simple. Don't work for those schools. Don't work for those employers. It will eventually be non-cost effective for them to hire illegally because they'll have to pay too much for those that want to run the risk. Market driven economics 101. So, in conclusion, keep yourself legal and yourself safe, help those that want or need your help, and keep in your lane regarding 'illegals'. Because if you're fully legal, China is the mollusc of your choice. -- Azriaphale760493
