Forum Rules

General Posting Guidelines

Think first before posting, think of the the way you phase your question especially when asking for help. Here are some general guidelines.


Please use SEARCH first! Tab top of forum.

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It is easy to search – just click the “Search” tab at the top of the forum page.


Be DESCRIPTIVE and Do not use stupid topic names

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They do not get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :

I have a question can you help me?

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

How can I explain to my child the reason they need to go to school?

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as “if you are not going to help do not waste my time replying”.

In my entire life I never thought I would every be asked to pay almost $4,000 to fly to another country at my own expense to work for free. But that is exactly what Monica Zhang of in Beijing wanted me to do last year! What is Gi2c? Probably the most brazen scam in China but it's not run by Chinese. A Russian guy named Yuri runs the show and Gi2C stands for "Get In To China" which tricks, traps, and fools dozens of university students to pay them what we thought was a $300 refundable deposit to reserve an internship with a big multi-national corporation in China for 90 days. At the end of the 90 days Monica said "you will probably get hired if you do a good job". Only after people pay their $300 do they find out they whole package cost - excluding air fare is $3,700 and their billing department starts harassing you for the other $3,400! Most people just ask for their "refundable" $300 deposit back. According to this former British employee - refunds just never happen...

Anyway, I got to meet three of their interns who live in the same Schuangjing community as my BF and they said they talked to dozens of interns and none of them got to intern with an MNC, and only one out of 50 of them got a job offer with a "smart home" company to help them make a web site in English for $3,000 a month - half of what he was making back in his own country. Below is a photo of the smooth talking girl who talked me out of my $300 deposit. I have to admit that she was well trained and had logical answers for everything. Combined with a cool web site and testimonials I thought were real, it is very easy to believe you are going to get a $80,000 job after you prove yourself during a 90 day internship. Gi2C sell dreams, but the reality is that they are just a big scam. Some people at agreed and recently added them to the China Liars List: and also see and
