China Scam Patrol issues warning to all expat foreign TEFL teachers in China - Stop uploading resume or be identity theft victim

ChinaScamPatrol - 2021 CSP REPORT: Why you must NEVER send your resume to an China TEFL Recruiter or to any overseas employer BEFORE you ask and verify these 7 questions or you will become a victim of a TEFL Job Scam or Identity Theft within 3-6 months that will cost you time, money, and grief.
[]

2021 REPORT: Interpol now confirms that 40% of all resumes sent to China for a variety of jobs (mostly foreign teachers) result in identity theft ESPECIALLY those who upload their resumes online. Further more we here at CSP have counted over 500 fake job ads that appear online everyday that serve as bait to lure victims into their traps. That is why the fraud squads, call these "bait ads". They may even result in what you think is a real job interview by phone or Skype. They are really scam artists well-trained to get you excited about a great non-existent job, only to pry more personal info from by phone or my emailing you a "questionnaire" they assure you is "personal and strictly confidential". They will tell you that the competition is keen, but they will let you know 'either way' in a day or two.

Sure enough, they call you back with the good news to tell you that you got the job and now have you send them a scan of your passport so they can put a contract and invitation letter together. You are so excited that you eagerly comply. Now, one of two things will happen...
[]

Option 1 - You never hear from them again. and when you call them either your call will be blocked, their phone is out of service, or someone answers the phone and tell you that the principal found a bi-lingual person to take the job - sorry.
[]

Option 2 - The scammer will have sold your info to a private "Black school" not legally allowed nor licensed to hire foreigners who will call and tell you when and where to report to work in China and send you a invitation from a third party that will get you a tourist or business visa, and they will promise to reimburse your air fare. When you get to china you sign a contract to work at a school you thought you were sold but now find yourself at a crappy school at half the salary. When you ask for your air fare, you are told you will be reimbursed when you complete your contract in one year!
[]

Either way, in about 6-9 months your family back home will call you and say the police are there looking for you concerning the $12,536.75 cents you owe on your unpaid credit card, and that you have 48 hours to pay the debt or they will issue an arrest warrant. WTF?

Here is just one such horror story that repeats itself hundreds of times every week from foreign teachers who failed to ask just 7 basic questions: https://ChinaScamWatch.wordpress.com Got the picture?

Now here is all you need to do BEFORE you send any resumes abroad or give personal information over the phone to anyone related to a an alleged job opportunity... including recruiters, and job agents - even at job fairs, since the may not be who they say they are. https://opnlttr.com/letter/china-esl-tefl-teacher-school-recruiter-black...

The 10 minutes you take to answer these 7 questions, and thirty minutes it will take to verify their answers, will ensure you get a legitimate job and do not let some scammer destroy your credit, put you in debt, broke in China, or get you arrested. Good luck and Bon Voyage!
