Scam Alert! World Ventures MLM Travel Fraud Recruiting Teachers...

Unread post by Saturn » 29 Mar 2016, 04:07

Watch out friends, these MLM schemers were recently featured on CBS news and somehow got a email and Skype list of ESL 7 TEFL teachers using fake job ads to lure you. "ESL Teacher Wanted Part Time - $300 an Hour" is the one I responded to. Anyway, here is the scam warning from Scam.com...

"Another get rich MLM scheme has come to China after thousands were victimized in America. As you may know a pyramid scheme needs a "product" in order to technically be legal. So their product is a travel agency. So groundbreaking and original eh? Anyway they just registered in Hong Kong and their mainland con artist is a woman in Tianjin who is recruiting Principals and expat school teachers showing them fake bank statements to get them excited. I guess the Chinese have not learn their lesson about MLM yet. Only the top two levels in Hong Kong and Tianjin will earn a fortune and the others will end up demanding a refund of their $999. CBS News officially declared them a scam as did 20 people at scam.com.

This World Ventures is actually a legal scam in China since China does not regulate MLMs just yet and since the company is operating out of Hong Kong, not many Chinese will travel to HK to sue for $999 when their trip alone, hotel accommodations and lawyer and court fees will exceed $5,000.
