China Recruiter Black List: New China Liars List At Reports Buckland Education Group Scam...I was going to report Bucklnad Education Group as a scam here but see that beat me to it at (Update No. 3).  This is cut and pasted from there, and be advised that Owen (the owner) is one of the smoothest-taloking con artists you will ever meet.  There are not many complaints about him because he threatens to blacklist teachers who expose him.  


"Buckland Education Group operates from Guilin. in Guanxi - a very beautiful part of South China and the owner is a very clever Chinese man named Ou Wen and uses the English name of "Owen". He is already blacklisted at the CTA & CFTU since 2010. Here is why...

* Lies to new teacher applicants about Visa Laws and makes his teachers come work illegally on F and L visas putting many expats at risk of arrest and imprisonment. Seven of his teachers have already been arrested, jailed and deported in the last two years and he did nothing to help them, not even offer to pay their fines. He merely hired replacements.

* He is not properly licensed to hire foreign teachers and so creates a fake front of "Cultural Exchange" that the PSB does not recognize.

* He is notorious for not paying wages for the last pay period and cannot legally provide release letters because of his licensing problems.

* Often pulls a bait and switch on teachers once they arrive in China.

* His contracts are very one-sided and deliberately vague for his own convenience.

Because he has been operating for over ten years, newbies wrongly assume he must be legitimate. Instead, he simply has good local guan xi in this tier 3 city where money talks louder than the law. Recommendation: AVOID"


Also be advised that I have started my own blog at as just another place to warn people about all the bottom feeder recruiters and unlicensed schools and related scams. Feel free to add your horror story there and here at  Th emore place we report these sleaze the sooner they will disappear and less victims will result.

There appears to be historical problems going back to 2009 with this Buck*a*d Group.*a*d--buck*a*d-group.aspx

In China they say a tiger does not change his s*r*pes.
