Warning - Fake Teaching Internships Offered By China ESL & New Life ESL - Scam!

If you are offered to be a teacher intern in China it is probably a scam where the recruiter really places you with a full time job, and then takes half of your salary as their fee without telling you. China ESL which also operates under the names of Total ESL and now more recently New Life ESL uses this scheme when they can convince a teacher they have no degree, so therefore "you must work one year as an intern." Don't fall for this horseshit and read this article here:

OnllineTEFL.com and I-to-I is also famous for using this scam as well, and are also just one company based in the U.K. See this link here:

Incorrect Information Posted

Hello Lee, this is Derrick and I'm one of the co-owners of New Life ESL. I'd like to clarify a few things here. First off, we are not China ESL and and have ZERO connection to China ESL. We do not work with Rebecca Tang and we don't send any of our teachers to work with her. In addition, we don't have anyone working for us as an intern and we certainly don't tell anyone that they "have to work with as a an intern for one year." All of our teachers sign contracts with schools and not with us.

Please don't post incorrect information on here about our company. I have no idea where you're getting this information, but none of it is true. In addition, we have many reviews about us on our FB, YouTube testimonial videos, and a whole bunch of teachers we've placed in great jobs that are more than willing to talk to new applicants about who we are and what we do. I can be contacted directly at Derrick@NewLifeESL.com

Hello Nathan

Every single one of these sites is referring back to one single site, and that's http://newlifeesl.wordpress.com. Did you actually read this site? The English is absolutely atrocious. This person could never be hired as an English teacher to work in China. They can barely even type proper English sentences. They also use an alias and have zero proof of anything they say. It's likely just a competitor trying to make us look back. You should instead look at the tons of positive reviews we have on our FB page from REAL people that can easily be verified through their FB accounts. Thanks.

I'm not buying New Life ESL Scam Explanations...

No Derrick, I am not at all focused on "just one wordpress blog" I am focused on how you dodged all the questions they asked you at this link here:

http://www.realscam.com/f8/rebeccas-china-esl-scam-continues-new-life-es...

I also cannot ignore the email summary from China Scam Patrol which I quote below:

"I started this thread focused on New Life ESL so will share with you an email reply I received from China Scam Patrol yesterday:

"Thank you for your inquiry. You are not the first to be concerned about New Life ESL which our preliminary investigation reveals the following:

* New Life ESL is an unregistered business entity in China with no rep office on record in any agency or ministry regulating foreign business operations in China. No records were found at SAFEA, SAIC, Ministry of Commerce, nor Ministry of Education.

* The website www.newlifeesl.com went on line in June of 2013 and is registered to a Brendan Gibson of Mesa, Arizona.

* New Life ESL is not licensed as an employment agency in the State of Arizona and no corporate records bear that business name.

* Mr. Derrick Yazwa purports to be the owner/operator of this business. His personal public records are available on line for $49 at the links provided below.

* The IRS has no taxpayer ID number and no Employer ID number assigned to any entity with the name of New Life ESL, and indication that no tax filings have been made of fiscal year 2013 as the filing deadline has passed.

* The "testimonials" and reviews we found online are typical for "teach in china operations" and are mostly self-generated.

* We have attempted to contact Mr. Yazwa to learn more about his online business but our efforts have been in vain and have been abandoned.

If you want a complete due diligence report on this company/individual we can provide one within 10 days for a fee. In the interim, we would urge you to be extremely cautious and wary of New Life ESL at this time.

In the future if you wish to check on a U.S.- based entity we suggest you start for free with tax and other public records shown here at
5 Ways to Find a Federal Tax ID Number - wikiHow If you are checking out a China-based operation we suggest you check the various China blacklists and read this article explaining the Chinese licensing authority known as "SAIC" Finding An Honest Agent Or Recruiter In China - Mission Impossible? - ESLwatch - Information, News and School Reviews

We hope we have been helpful. Should you become a victim of any scam in China, please contact us with the details so we can help warn others who may fall into the same trap of which there are more than 380 at this time.

Best Wishes,

Jason
Public Affairs Specialist

I think the above speaks for itself. Mr. Yazwa only needs to post his LLC registration link to establish some effort to legitimize himself and and explain why he operates illegally in China and advises his prospects to commit visa fraud that can get teachers arrested, fined, and deported with a five year reentry ban. He claims transparency on his website so I guess now is the time to step up and demonstrate that transparency. Derrick?"

So where are your LLC documents and China registrations? Post them on line or give us a link, and please tell us WHY you told so many people to violate China visa laws and go work in China on an L visa which you know is 100% illegal?
