StartSmart Education website says that they are recruitment experts with 20 years experience NOT that the company has been in operation for 20 years. The company name is new, starting in Nov 2016. The people who started it, one of those people being myself, have over 20 years of experience finding placements for teachers, preparing them for travel, organizing visas, organizing accommodations, developing curriculum, etc. The local placement company we work with is one of the largest in Thailand and has been operating in Thailand and China for around 20 years also. Together with them we have successfully placed 1000's of teachers in hundreds of schools. You can watch videos of some of these teachers on our facebook or youtube page.
I would advise avoiding the use of terms like "scam" in the future simply because you did not take them time to speak with us and learn more about us. This would have been better research. We are very open and honest with all of our applicants. We charge absolutely nothing to applicants for our services.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Best of luck!
