Re: Ideal English in the UAE
What kind of documents are they asking for that makes you think it might be a scam? Also, look at the offer. Is it a reasonable offer? Did they actually interview or just immediately ask for all your documents? Finally, you can ask to speak directly to some teachers that they currently employ.

Hello! I also have recieved appointment letter from the Ideal English School(without any formal face-to-face or skype/telephonic interview). The letter of appointment was erroneous. They ammended the errors after pointing them out. Now they are asking for USD 1300 for visa processing. This is not first time I am going out of my country for work. I was not asked for money by the employer organisation earlier. The matter is suspicious.

Hi, So here is the final installment of yet another scam. Yesterday I visited the web site these guys have put together and I have to say it is very convincing. I decided to try and connect with other teachers and also tried admin and HR. But none of the links worked so I emailed Mr Christopher Anderson and asked for links to other teachers. I also asked him to supply info about himself online as there is no connection anywhere linking him with the school. I haven't received another email from him but I did receive an email about the travel requirements. Below is the email and to me it seems like the same guys who set up the Kings College Dubai Scam, I think they are even using the same travel agent, Al Sahara Travels & Tour LLC for visa processing. What should I do now, I am thinking that I will email them and point out that no teacher pays for travel and visa processing. Or should I just end communication now? If anyone has any feedback I would love to ear from you.
