What was the scam?


In order for it to be a scam, you need to lose something believing that you would be receiving something in exchange....


did you check that website?have you checked their website?You dont need to jump into acid to know that is going to kill you, isnt?I went to a 8 hours meeting with them where I witness the following: incredible chinglish on a contract I basically write from the scratch;imcompentence from a company is supposed to handle business of millions in usd; a GM with an English name and surname that doesn't speak English and doesnt understand any English and with the temper of a 8 yo old boy..should I continue?

I'm still wondering what, exactly, it was that they were going to take from you... was it supposed to be 1500 (currency?) in notorisation fees?


Or just not pay for the goods delivered?


Or what?

yes the above fee you mentioned, that according to the boss and his assistant, was 8000 euro to be split in half (of course!) but the strange things is that they were ready to pay a million euro (50%) of the project at once within 30 days after we signed the contract but the contract had to be notarised first...

A: They're saying you should be in China already because entering China i
A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
