Some guy at eslcafe discovered that this old recruiter who advertises everywhere in the world for foreign teachers to teach in China is using a FAKE WHITE LIST that contains all the schools that she recruits from and she said that she and the schools are endorsed by SAFEA (the Chinese government regulatory body). Well this guy called over to SAFEA and SAFEA didn't know anything about this bullshit "white list". Here, read for yourself...
"As I also pointed out I called over to SAFEA and spoke with a woman in th eoffice named "Song" and asked her if I could get an updated copy of the SAFEA "white list" and she had no idea what I was talking about. After I explained it to her, she said there was no such "white list" put out by SAFEA!
I then asked Song for a list of schools that are "endorsed" by SAFEA and she flat out told me that SAFEA is not allowed to "endorse" any school. So when I described what I was looking at online she told me that is the "SAFEA registration OF EVERY SCHOOL THAT IS LICENSED TO HIRE FOREIGNERS IN BEIJING"
So after hearing all this I surely became suspicious as to how Angelina's could be calling this a "White List" and then I see that all the schools she promotes on her web site, are indeed on this fake "SAFEA WHITE LIST"
So then I started to wonder is Angelina's ESL Cafe at anesl.com was legit or not and started googling and found they are blacklisted in quite a few places on various ESL/TEF forums and here as well:
And was really surprised to see that the complaints go as far back as 2004. Anyway, I noticed the jobs advertised on her web site have the lowest salaries I have yet to see in China offered by any agency. Draw your own conclusions from the above"
This agency is huge friends. And just goes to show that even the big agencies that make millions are just as crooked as the little independent guy who works out his home with a 163.con email and his mobile phone.
