Nothing will tick you off more than have to pay serious money to fly to China to be told the paid Fortune 500 Internship you were promised was filled but relax, there is a no name Chinese company that has a slot for you! -but you have to work for free! This scene has played out for two of my friends and one of them wrote out her story above. So unless you can afford to lose $3.000 - $7,000, I suggest you steer clear of these sharks.

Maybe the biggest offenders are the British twin companies of I-to-I and OnlineTEFL.com as I found here:
