90% of agents are illegal! FULL STOP. NEVER EVER SIGN A CONTRACT WITH ANY AGENCY EVER! Ask your Chinese embassy in your home country to verify their legitimacy FIRST. Never let them talk you into anything. (They are usually very sweet talking likeable foreign scamsters) I was scammed by a UK youngster from goteachrecruitment. And a shady Chinese company (his girlfriend) and they are all in a trilateral agreement with a school that employs foreigners illegally. You think you are legal but depending on the province, local Guangxi”with the PSB and School and agents... its all one big way of dealing with money underground. They all work together and everyone gets tax free kickbacks! If you see smoke.... report at your local Chinese Embassy immediately. They welcome our help and welcome feedback! Don’t be afraid.
