Reddit Scam Alert! Do not trust job ads from TEFL, TEACHERS, or China Job subs.

Do not trust any job offers or "recommendations" made by anyone from the TEFL, TEACHERS, or CHINA JOB subs because some of the mods work for scam artists like Rebecca Tand and Helen Chen of China and you will end up with an illegal visa and a salary that gets skimmed every month. Dittor for jobs offered at ESL Cafe. These links will explain better than me;

Indeed! The moderators are turning out to me predator recruiters in at least 5 different subs:

This is quite easy to believe because this was the huge problem at ESLCafe for years. Now that all those ESLCafe mods were exposed the users spread the word quickly and their scam game almost died. So "Time Machine" and all those ESLCafe recruiters (about a dozen) just started doing the same thing on Reddit. The restricted subs do not seem to have this problem of lurking recruiters because as soon as users are reported for soliciting they are immediately banned. Three of the good subs are http://reddit.com/r/eslscams and http://reddit.com/r/teflscams and http://reddit.com/r/tefl_tips_traps_scams. The huge TEFL sub and China Jobs subs are saturated with camouflaged recruiters.
