Teacher Tips: Beware of schools or agencies that ask you to send any kind of payment (for 'application', 'visa processing' etc). NEVER send bank or credit card details to employers. Jobs that sound 'too good to be true' probably are! If any TEFL.net job advertiser requests money from you, please contact us immediately.

Please do your homework carefully on any job that interests you. Read here about job scams.
