Red Flag Scam Alert - WiseWay Global Education - ESL & TEFL Agents in Beijing, China - Under Investigation... 2016 UPDATE

Are You Looking For:

We recently requested China Scam Patrol to investigate this company after they recently merged with a known scam operator in China (Gi2c) and finding no current registrations that show the company is the same company that operated in 2007.  It is our belief that since the website was registered and created in 2013, that they have hijacked the name of a company that had a decent reputation back in 2007 that went out of business in 2009.

No matter, they are NOT "partners" with the Ministry of Education as Gi2c claims, and we can find no SAIC registration for them and SAFEA confirmed they are not registered under the name of WiseWay Global Education.  The absence of internet ads for many years also raises concerns. This company needs further investigation relating to ownership and claimed affiliations with over 300 universities. Information received from a former Gi2C employee at realscam.com indicates that Gi2C may have bought this company name which would be the 4th time in 7 years they have changed their name, perhaps to evade bad publicity under their old names of Getin2China, etc.

Therefore we urge extreme caution in dealing with this company until we get word back from China Scam Patrol. If you do decide to use an agent in finding teaching work in China please at least follow these guidelines:  http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?644846-China-Job-Recruiter-amp-Visa-Agent-Scams-25-Red-Flag-Warnings We do know that they have previously advised newbie teachers to come work in China illegally on F, M, and L visas, and just like Gi2C, they use two different web sites.

CFTU Warns China Foreign English Teachers (ESL & TEFL) To Avoid Blind Job Ads On Forums - 2016 Scams

Are You Looking For:




We have all seen them at EslCafe.com, TheBeijinger.com and Echinacities.com... great paying ESL & TEFL jobs but no employer is identified and you must send your resume and photo to a blind email address that is always a disposable email address  (126, 163, hotmail, etc) More and more of these "blind ads" are simply "bait ads" to get hold of your resume and contact info. What happens next is downright scary: 




We remind you that all these expat and ESL forums are primarily a business. They are there to make money and the three mentioned above seem to have no qualms about selling resumes to any buyer with the bucks to pay for them. All three of these forums have been featured before at Scam.com and other scam-reporting sites.


Therefore, we highly suggest you foregt about these forum ads altogether and apply directly to FAOs at the schools and universities where you want to teach.  By doing so you will also net a much larger salary - at least 50% more money and in many cases, 100% more in wages.
