As we celebrate our 10th anniversary (Nov. 15th, 2010) of investigating simple scams and sophisticated frauds in China, we can safely say that foreign teachers are the most targeted victims because they re seen by scammers as the lowest hanging fruit who do not bother to do very much, if any due diligence.

As a result, a full 50% of foreigners who come to China with adventure and goodwill in their hearts with a dream of making and saving money, leave within 6 months and go home angry, and almost broke. The 50% that stay did their homework, investigated their prospective employer (BEFORE sending their resumes and passport scans) and are now legally working (with a Z visa) and are earning $4,000 to $6,000 a month after taxes, and are having fun, making friends, and living a comfortable life. WHY? Most of them found and obtained their own jobs and used the below web sites to do so, and to avoid all the 895 land mines well hidden for the arrival of new expats..

In short, READ now and your dream job in China next semester will not become a nightmare later. As Will Rogers once said; "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make them drink". Our tips and warnings will continue, but it is up to you to pay attention. Good luck teachers...

Be especially cautious when selecting a TEFL Course since most, but not all of the online programs are frauds. As guidance, we suggest you visit and read: https://chinaforeignteachersunion.wordpress.com or the 12 page report put out by the China Teachers Alliance.

Thank you so much for these links. They are worth a few months salary IMO because they will save every ESL and TEFL teacher at least $5,000 - $10,000USD for every teacher working abroad, especially in China. Xie Xie!
