Q: OK so CFTU guy is back

Years old topics being dug up for no reason, stupid visa questions/horror stories with all the good keywords being posted by unknown profiles... the usual pattern, only this time a bit of effort is spent in storytelling.

A bit.

 

Oh well, we still say CFTU but actually his thing now is more "internships" since his "teachers union" hoax is so busted he is banned on sight on most major expat websites... I mean those with have active admins *cough cough*.

OK so guess what, remember the link to Global Times our dear Steven is apparently so fond of posting around for no apparent reason?

That one: http://onestop.globaltimes.cn/whats-it-like-to-be-deported-from-china/

 

Don't get fooled, it's from a Q&A section just like here: it's not the front page, it's no official news, it's not vetted, it could have been posted by anyone and so are the comments.

It's the exact same old SEO technique they've been using from the beginning: post random stories on renamed sites trying to improve their reputation and look legit.

 

As a reminder of what Steven98, Zethe and probably a bunch of others are about: answers.echinacities.com/question/my-research-and-conclusions-about-cftuscam-buster-scam?type=alatest

Wouldn't it be funny if it was made public that GT had endorsed a wanted criminal? :p

I mean come on,

http://answers.echinacities.com/question/boss-terminating-contract-refus...

http://answers.echinacities.com/question/ordered-leave-china?type=alates...

writing is a bit less lazy than before and he actually gives closure to the stories, but with the rash of visa/work related questions of these days including the usual random dig up, don't you get at least a bit suspicious? They don't even ask real questions, and people usually don't just pop out to relate their experience for nothing, sorry I think it would be great too but reality doesn't work this way. I'm not saying it would never happen but seriously what are the odds.

 

Until now I've been right in most of what I said, so now I'm declaring this:

- These accounts will either keep posting and eventually make themselves obvious OR they'll disappear. Time and cost.

- You'll see links to these posts magically appear to validate CFTU / China Scam Watch bogeyman stories.

icnif77:

I can't tell, if Q is fictitious or OP is in real trouble, so I give an advice how to handle the matter.

Nei Mongol SAFEA's address and contact no. aren't listed on our link, what made me think a bit about the Q.

You might be right, but still Q and As could serve as an advice to other FTs (1300 hits) working in China.

Zethe:

I definitely got lucky with help from redditors and here...and some potential employers willing to help me call SAFEA (repeatedly).
I even had to have my boss sign and stamp an agreement that she will give the papers she is supposed to give ANYWAY on contract termination...on video.

Hopefully this will all be over soon, I just want to go to a more reputable school in Shanghai, it's a Canadian business named Panda Education. Heard of them?

It looks 'boss terminated contract...' was BS!

 

I asked OP for Nei Mongol SAFEA's phone number, he got an answer from. 

 

No reply/no ph. number.

I just want to update SAFEA's address&contact no. thread, where Nei Mongol address and contact no. aren't listed.

Why is it every time I see the capital letters CFTU, my mind wants to convert it to STFU. Coincidence ?!  I think not.

The one about the school seems plausible. But clearly the CFTU guy is back with a different type of scam. I think he finally gave up the CFTU scam. Only the future can tell.

CFTU guy is such a freak. Bruce Gorcyca. Calls himself "The Leader" and rants about all the recruiters want him dead because they fear the obviously fake CFTU so much.

 

I dont know how that guy can look in the mirror. He's such a joke. Must think he's a victim some how and that scamming people is making the world even.

Expatlife26 I reckon you know that i'm not this CFTU guy, especially all the postings you made as BoogerBlasterCFTU on another site. with your crazy UN stories. angel

expatlife26:

nah I only post here

 

whether it is you or not, CFTU guy looks like hes just another 2 bit scammer with a messiah complex. Might actually believe at this point that he's "The Leader" and worthy of being followed

 

might just be tactical though. If i owned a business and thought a cult leader had me in his sights i'd been keen to pay up to get him off my back

A:Teaching English in China Requirements for 2022 (chinabyteaching.com) This link will answer your visa questions. There is NOT a requirement for two years experience to be a teacher in China.  If you come with your husband under a different visa, make sure you have all the required documentation to get a Z visa when you find a job in China. It will make your life much easier.  To work in China, you MUST have a Z visa and only a Z visa.  -- nashboroguy
