Recently we have noticed about 3 dozen obvious recruiters pretending to be teachers posting comments on three of the largest ESL and TEFL forums and message boards. They are shamelessly praising themselves in the third person and even giving links to "reviews" that they clearly created themselves.
Yet other agents spend their time posting jobs on the boards with super low salaries and then use sock puppet user names to convince you that these ridiculous wages are "normal" or even "better than average"! Don't step into this manure folks.
Usually you can tell the fake posts by the poor English or the superlative praise they use.

It sad that we even have to warn people about this latest ruse, but newbies are probably falling for it. Remeber to ask for a 2,000 yuan per month raise when your contract expires. If you need to know why, visit this link...
