    Beware of Spammers such as Jiamei Education (views: 1632)

    - China - Wed, 27 Jan 2016 Posted by Mark

    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....

    Dubai - United Arab Emirates - Sat, 16 Jan 2016 Posted by Doug

    Dubai British School - (dubaibritish-school.com) - Dubai, UAE - Fake posing as the actual school The above school will contact you via the principal of the "school": Andy Homden (principals@dubaibritish-school.com / Tel:00971501874916 ). In the email, they will refer you to the Wikepedia listing for the school: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai_British_School but they are a scam.

    They are scammmers posing as the American School of Madrid and the The Schengen Visa Office. The school is aware of this scam and has posted a warning on their website. They will ask for your CV, cover letter and photo after which they will forward a somewhat simplistic application. After this, they will send you a too good to be true contract with the director's signature and request that you forward copies of your passport, bank statement and v....

    Admin Officers/Tutors/Assit lecturers - Wells University Job Offer Scam (views: 2250)

    - United Kingdom - Sun, 06 Dec 2015 Posted by Admin

    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....

    Private Tutor Scam - Dr. George McGeorge - Devon, England (views: 1757)

    Devon - United Kingdom - Sun, 06 Dec 2015 Posted by Admin

    This is another email scam asking for you to help teach his wife (Vietnamese) and child. He claims to be an American living abroad while offering 3,500 GBP to teach his family. This scam is actually quite detailed in that he sends mutliple emails with pictures of his family and even his "passport". Regardless, one thing remains the same...too good to be true.  His email is geemcgeorge@googlemail.com PLEASE NOTE: The email and names chan....

    Posting for Jobs that are NOT teaching is usually a warning sign (views: 1948)

    - Indonesia - Sat, 05 Dec 2015 Posted by Admin

    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....
