Seriously, getting yourself in a situation where you may be blackisted (e.g., in case of a police raid or some other way they will learn about the legal status of your friend) is NOT an option.
My concrete, practical advice would be:
Finish your employment period as agreed upon with your "employer", get your cash, and leave the country. From outside, then try to find a new, legal job with a real employer who get you the necessary papers to apply for a working visa.
Any other advice contrary to that would not be of benefit to your friend - so, for example, if you decided to leave your current job, where would you go, eventually becoming homeless and have no money at all? Not very nice if you have no sufficient resources of your own.
Thus, please, your friend may reflect before before he or she is doing anything in one way or the other!
Hey I read so many articles about scam artists and such. If you seriously have a visa problem, is there anybody you can turn to for help? Or do you have to choose 2 choices: 1) blacklisted and deported or 2) live like a hermit.
I'm asking because I have a friend with a problem I am doing research and trying to figure out how to help.
Please email me for further information; I have given my email address above; there are some details that I won't tell in public.
You will get a reply, promised!
Turnoi, Ive got a friend cheated on a visa scam by someone going by the name of Frank Zhang (Zhang Ming). Can you tell us any more information about this guy, how you found him, what he did, who he really is, where he can be found?
My friend was cheated by someone who we think is Frank Zhang.
Do you agree with the poster that said "Sang Xing" is "Frank Wong?" or is that incorrect, in your opinion?
I ask because it sounds like you met him face to face...we would be interested in knowing how that came to be,
and where if possible.
Sang Xing is a good agent, but if you're a young woman of good or fair looks, watch yourself if you meet up with him in Shanghai. Despite his middle-age flab, he's definitely got an eye for the foreign gals, and will try to come on to you strong if he finds you attractive. So, it's best not to encourage him by wearing a short skirt when you visit his office!
Frank Zhang is an evil agent operating under many different aliases to cheat and deceive foreign teachers.
His nick is "wangbadan" - please check with a native speaker of Chinese for the meaning of that phrase...
Then, you would be more reluctant to use it in your unfounded praise of that crook!
Frank Zhang (Waibadan) has provided excellent agency services to non-native speakers of English and unqualified foreigners seeking EFL posts in China over the years.
Actually, his services have been a godsend to those two groups over the years, though he has been unfairly maligned at times for having been unable to find many of them work in China's big cities other than 'monkey work, ie at training centers. The ongoing problem is that qualified native speakers of English compete in droves for decent jobs in cities like Beijing and Shanghai, ie positions as foreign teachers of English in the public education sector there. So, Waibadan has had no choice but to place many of his foreign clients in schools/universities in the backwater areas of China.
Incidentally, Waibadan has been operating under the name of Sangxing for some years to date. He has proved himself to be a good agent for me - he's as honest as the day is long!
I think there is a person well-known for his cheat and deceit behind this: FRANK ZHANG (wangbadan) from Shanghai
No, FRANK ZHANG (wangbadan) is not behind this; take it from me, he has scruples - he just tries to place foreigners in teaching jobs in China.
I think there is a person well-known for his cheat and deceit behind this:
This man runs different kinds of shadowy businesses, stay clear of him!
And delete any of his unsolicited emails and do not respond!
Beware with this information below saying that "he could work for visa" he have been deceiving many people since 2005. he will let you send your passport in the address he'll give it to u then later, he'll call u saying he got ur passport and same time claiming money for ur downpayment, after few days he'll say ur visa was there already u need to give the last payment, wait for 24 hours ur passport will be back to u..... but u keep on waiting till you will find out ...by calling the express mail .. no one pick your passport so there.... even you report to police they won't do anything... how many cases has been reported to PSB but they never did anything ... so to avoid big lost don't trust anyone in China ...it may either chinese or foreigner "coz" this man speaks like a foreigner you might be deceive....there are some visa agents too in China but at least you will appear to the PSB. and take note you will see this post in Ejobfair or in ESL websites....
