5 - Don't become attached to your wife or child. When you are deported you will miss them terribly.
Advice for those foreigners with Chinese spouses intent on teaching in China and unable to obtain Z visas.
1 - Don't accept posts in the area under the jurisdiction of the PSB that have issued your Residence Permit.
2 - Don't accept posts that require you to stay outside the workplace campus.
3 - Use a false name when you teach and speak to other people.
4 - Insist on being paid by your employer in cash, not via a bank.
Your chances of being found out will be virtually zero provided you maintain a low profile wherever you go and avoid telling other foreigners and any Chinese people you come into contact with that you are teaching without a Z visa.
I noticed that their job offers never mention the Z visa. It could be one of those "recruiters" who place teachers without credentials, or who place teachers in schools that can't get Z visas. In either case, it spells trouble and I chose to stay away.
teachingchina / Teaching China is just a guy advertising jobs for schools/cities in the boondocks where nobody wants to go. Just pass when you see that name.

Looks like one of those anonymous websites that gather personal information from teachers and resell the information for illegal purposes (like illegally importing goods into China). Can someone in China check their permits with the Chinese authorities (starting with the PBS, also business permits)? Post them online, expose them, let them come and give us their names and locations, and tell their story.
You can always denounce them to their domain registrar and to their hosting company - See link below
This recruiter is to be avoided at all costs.
I will write the details of what happened to me later (gotta run now)
