      I am in the process of arranging travel to Piacenza to begin teaching with UK School in Piacenza.  How do I know if it is legit or not? I have already begun my visa application and am about to purchase my plane ticket.

      Are you positive it is a scam? I had an interview with video and apparently the person who interviewed me also comes out in a picture on the facebook page for that school.

      It seems the user is saying they contact the school directly and they said they never placed the ad so the scammers were probably using them as a front.  Easiest way to determine this, if they are using a gmail/hotmail account, is to go to the school's website and contact them directly or ask for an email that uses their school web domain name.  ....

      Did those websites remove them or respond to the report of a scam?  Seems they always have a lot of scam school posting on their sites.
