CFTU ESL Teacher Scam Alert! Beijing High School 80 Fraud - BJ80.com



Beware of a pleasant foreigner fellow using the name "Jordan" and disposable hotmail and yahoo accounts pretending to be the FAO for Beijing High School No. 80 in Chaoyang district offering great paying jobs of 20,000 - 30,000 yuan per month. This is just a scam. He uses several Beijing mobile numbers. The school administration never heard of this guy and we are now notifying the principal and the police.  These scams are common during the summer months when the admin staff is on vacation.  YCIS was recently subjected to a similar scam.

This man may be an identity thief so be sure not to send him any of your personal information nor any money. If he has contacted you, please send us the telephone number and email address he contacted you from and the link to ad that you responded to. This will help us track him down.  Thanks.

  1. The following is a statement of my experience while working at Beijing No. 80 High School (北京第八十中学). If you are thinking about working there or find someone named Li Dequan (李德泉) as part of any organization you have been made an offer from then you should consider working elsewhere. I was told by Director Li that I would be teaching A-level or AP classes, but was made to teach other classes despite my pointing out the lie on his part. I was not picked up from the airport, had to take a taxi, and was not reimbursed for the cost. I was locked in the building overnight by Li Dequan then threatened with death afterwards and yet he claimed he didn't know I was even locked in the international department. The teachers were required to participate in a “voluntary” Marzano teacher training conference and were never paid for attending the whole weekend event. The air quality is extremely poor due to poor ventilation, abundance of dust, and formaldehyde and other volatile chemicals that are released from constant remodeling. Because of the poor air I got headaches within 1 hour of being in the building and sometimes my hands would start shaking within a few hours and other times my tongue would tingle and I would have a bad taste in my mouth from breathing the air. While on sick leave, I was fired and told I needed to leave the dormitory within a few hours. I returned all the school property and was taken to a hotel which the school paid for, but on the way there I was told that I needed to give the school over my passport such that they could cancel my residence permit. I did not hand over my passport and over 3 weeks I was repeatedly told that if I did not give my passport to the school then I would be breaking the law and may be blacklisted, if I did not cancel my residence permit with the Exit and Entry Bureau then I would be breaking the law, and finally that if I did not shorten my residence permit then the school would cancel my residence permit. They lied about it all. The school promised to give me a new release letter (since the old one was false), my cancellation of FEC (foreign experts certificate), not to cancel my residence permit, and to transfer all the documents to my new employer; but, they lied about that as well. My lawyer and I finally filed a case against the school, won the case, and now the school is appealing it. The suit includes request for payment of violations of my contract, of violations of labor law towards me, and of violation of labor law towards the Chinese government. The school has prevented me from fulfilling the contract of my new employer by not giving me the documents that they are legally required to give. As I wrote in the beginning, if you are thinking about working at Beijing No. 80 High School (北京第八十中学) or find someone named Li Dequan (李德泉) as part of the organization then you should consider working elsewhere. Also at the school are secretaries such as Zhang Jing/Selina (张静) and Xu Lei/Ethan, Director Wang Jing (王瑾), old Vice Principal Li Xiaojun (李晓君), new Vice Principal Jordan and Principal Tian Shulin (田树林) all of which you should avoid as well since they seem nice in the beginning but if they think you will expose their lies and deceit they will do everything in their power to fire you or harm you another way.
