Welcome to 2018 TEFL teachers.

As usual we all have to be on guard against the

many skimmers, scammers, and employee exploiters which make up the three big 3

categories of those who join our blacklist every year. The list was getting smaller

year by year but this year we saw the explosion of many new alias names for the old

veteran scammers like the notorious Rebecca Tang (affectionately known as the The

Wicked Witch Of The East) who now calls herself by many different names

depending on whom she is speaking (She is either now Rosie, Ruby, or Rose Tang)

and her old China ESL scam company gave birth to 14 different alias companies

listed below. In reality just 8 people account for 90% of the TEFL scams in China

but these 8 people are cunning chameleons always changing their company names.

But while the cat and mouse charades continue and the China Scam Patrol exposes

the name games, we urge you all just to ask 7 basic questions to any potential

employer and/or job agents, FAOs, or TEFL recruiters you come across. And within

10 minutes of asking these questions by phone or email, you will know if you are

dealing with honest or dishonest players in China. Here are the seven questions to

ask and they are based on the graphic on page 5 below which is taken from the

monthly newsletter of China Scam Patrol;



You will not find a quicker nor cheaper way to do due diligence in China (it’s free!).

Those who dance around the questions or try to bash China Scam Patrol are those

listed below on this blacklist or probably in que for investigation. Those who can

provide the requested information straight away are the real deal IF you take the time

to verify what they tell you!

This listing below is in no special order and is just a listing. If you want to know WHY

they are on this list then visit our master blacklist at

 Snitching on fake teachers they recruited for reward moneys

 Baiting & Switching jobs on teachers after they arrive in China

China job scams take many shapes and forms and come in assorted flavors. Here

are the top 20 most popular scammers in China today with their signature MOs…



To avoid 95% of China Job Scams avoid using agents and find your own SAFEA

registered employer with the fewest complaints. Just follow this guide here in the

OP link and you will earn 20% - 50% more by eliminating a broker chain.



To be sure there still are some honest head hunters in China but they work for

licensed agencies like Hays, Mercer, Marsh, etc. They have real offices with

dozens of employees. Those that exist only in cyberspace with (or without) a

website and business license should be avoided. Many are identity thieves. Read

this before you send out a single resume for a China job


Now that you see the minefield in front of you in China, here is your map of mines

to avoid unless you like costly and unpleasant surprises. Remember , China does

not have a BBB, FTC, and their FBI (Public Security Bureasu or PSB) really don’t

care much about transient foreigners getting ripped off. In fact, some of them are

amused by it all. They openly call expat fraud victims “dumb idiots” and joke about

the victims in Chinese. But if a victim is a local just watch them swarm!

Never forget the 90% rule about expat employment in China…
“90% of China’s employers are honest, fair, and ethical, but 90%
of the China job agents and recruiters are not!”

You may find this hard to believe but 80% of the employment
contracts foreign expats are asked to sign in China are illegal
according to China Labor laws. They actually ask you to sign a
contract that forfeits your 15 employee rights and privacy
guaranteed by law in China. Do not sign the first contract you
are given, even if you are told “Everyone signs this standard
contract.” That is horse manure friends. Read these links and
ARE NOT EXPLOITED or used as a “marketing monkey”.


Here’s a sample of a bad but very common contract:

The last link below will give you the rest of our blacklist from our
website. But before you leave, we suggest you bookmark and
read these links here when you have time so you can learn the
truth about China expat salaries. In 2017 the average veteran
TEFL teacher in China earned a monthly average of 18,000 rmb.
Only newbie teachers earn less than 15,000 per month due to
their own ignorance. The more you learn the more you earn!
