Dear Fellow Teachers,

Please be warned that BeijingTeach.com and ForeignExpats.com are both scam recruitment websites operated by convicted felon Rosie Tang who prior to be jailed used the name Rebecca Tang. Aside from cheating over 1,200 foreign teachers, she also cheated her own employees as you can see here: https://www.scam.com/showthread.php?734205-China-s-Fake-TEFL-Foreign-Teachers-Identified-Here

Rosie not only cheats and exploits her customers, she even turns them into the police for the very same fake diplomas and TEFL certificates she sold to them to collect the 15,000 reward! https://chinascampatrol.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/329-china-foreign-teachers-arrested-for-using-fake-tefl-certificates-in-april-of-2017/

Be advised that she owns an operates 11 different alias companies and everyone of them should be avoided completely, no matter what promises they make to you verbally. Do not send any personal information or your passport scan to any recruiter, especially the ones below because they will eventually sell this information to identity thiefs.

First things first… Come to China legally and abide by the law – no matter what some “friendly” recruiter or agent tells you.

China is known for more than just great food, friendly people, and The Great Wall.  China is a land of endless scams, frauds, and schemes.  Unfortunately, newly arrived foreigners are naive, gullible, and the favorite prey of predatory con artists.

There are over a hundred ESL/TEFL teacher recruiters per square mile in Beijing, Shanghai, and almost as many in California and New York. For every person they place in a school in China, they earn between $500 to $2,000. Because this is a lucrative business, 90% of these people are not honest, not licensed to do business in China, and will tell you anything you want or need to hear to sign their contract. They will tell you only what they want you to know, and often lie about how much money you can earn and what visa you must have to work in China. (A Z visa is a MANDATORY requirement by Chinese law).

The Z visa is the work visa given to any foreigner who wants to work in China. You must arrive to China with a Z visa in your passport if you are coming to work.  If you ar etold to come here on a L, F, M, or X, visa and you can “convert” or “upgrade” it later, the person telling you this is a fraudster to avoid.  If they persuade you to sign on the dotted line, this is what you can expect will happen to you, after your recruiter/agent collects their fee and you arrive in China  http://www.opnlttr.com/letter/over-1800-china-foreign-esl-tefl-english-teachers-arrested-chinese-govt-sting-operations-2016

Before you even send a resume to anyone related to a job in China, you must know the truth about the job ads you see online for hundreds of great-paying jobs in China. Most of them are for jobs that really do not exist. WHAT!?!  Yes, its true and this is why… https://www.scam.com/entry.php?5521-How-…nst-job-frauds

If you actually read the above two links you are now 99% “scam-proof” and ready to enter the Middle Kingdom with confidence knowing you will not be exploited nor ripped off by agents, employers, and identity thiefs. And if you are offered a Fortune 500 internship instead of a teaching job, you need to remember the golden rule: You NEVER have to pay any fee for a real job nor internship in China, and both of them will require that you have a Z Visa in your passport at the time you arrive in China. If you are still confused, please take your time and read up here;
