yes - this man is definitely a major fraudster - beware of him - he is posting teaching jobs around the world, especially Asia - he then asks for money for visa fees etc. A REAL FRAUDSTER - CONTACT THE POLICE, whatever country you are in!!!!!!
Desde la escuela Bon Soleil comunicamos que esta dirección es una estafa y actualmente está en manos de la policia nacional.
Disculpen las molestias.
You are right. You saw it for what it is, a scam.
In addition to the spelling mistakes, when they call themselves "Mr." its a good indicator of scam.
But mostly, look at the ridiculously high salary: There is no way that an English teacher would get that type of salary in Spain.
Just ignore them.
It's good that you posted their email here; other teachers will find this thread when they do a research about the scammers. You will save those teachers disappointment and money.
I posted my resume on Dave's ESL Cafe and got an offer from Barcelona in Spain which sounded to good to be true and very out of character, poor English, and then a rude response when I asked for information about the school. I was not able to find the so called school. However since I am in China Google does not work so the school might exist. This is a copy of the two emails I received
