    • TLS - Top Language School Scam for teaching in Italy -

      Applied to them because of the great salary, then almost fell for paying for visa but then I remembered the advice from this site about too good to be true so I checked them out.  Yes, many say it is a scam with little/no interview and then a request for money for the visa and a phone number that doesn't add up for Italy. Plus Italy is impossible to get visas for non-EU members.  Then I saw the TLS Top Language School Website which is pretty empty.

      This is their website:

      And a thread talking about the scam going back to 2014: 

      Here is the ad:

      Our English School is interested in receiving applications from dedicated teachers who wish to develop as EFL/ESL professionals whilst contributing to the schools reputation for learner-centred foreign language teaching. Applicants must possess a desire to live in Spain.

        Salary: Attractive salary, depend on your qualification and experience. Severance pay of 2,60E/Monthly.
      The salary is paid for 25 teaching hours/week and Salary increases according to experience and qualifications. Additional teaching hours taught are paid as overtime. An additional 100% of one month net salary is paid on successful completion of each full academic year contract.Paid holidays over Christmas, Easter and any local or national holidays which fall within the contractual period. Legal employment contract with full social security contributions paid by school. Free annual full medical health check.

      Visa assistance for non EU

      TESall Group Admin looked at the school name (TLS-Top Language School) after they paid for a premium posting. The previous free job ad, like the premium paid job ad, simply didn’t look legitimate so we did some research and found a major red flag warning. When looking further, the key is the phone number used: +390694801641 which appears for numerous language school recruitment going back to 2004 under various school names: John Milton Institute (in 2004): TLS-Top Language Schools (in 2008) and Lord Byran College (in 2009): Linguarama Roman (in 2012): The British Language Centre (in 2013): Inlingua Ferrera (in 2014):
