TLS - Top Language School Scam for teaching in Italy - firstname.lastname@example.org
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: http://www.toplanguageschool.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):http://www.esl-jobs-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=13824 TLS-Top Language Schools (in 2008) and Lord Byran College (in 2009): http://forums.eslcafe.com/job/viewtopic.php?t=105179 Linguarama Roman (in 2012):http://forums.eslcafe.com/job/viewtopic.php?t=103753 The British Language Centre (in 2013):http://forums.eslcafe.com/job/viewtopic.php?t=103095 Inlingua Ferrera (in 2014):http://www.esl-jobs-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=14022
