Anyone found scam jobs on TES?

    It seems unlikely, but I just need to check. Some months ago I applied for (and got) a language school job in Spain/Italy. I'm thrilled, but the visa has been dragging on forever because I'm not an EU citizen. I've also had to send a lot of money in front to open bank account for visa and put money in it. Now I see the school itself has posted a scam warning on its page, and while I see no specific red flags in my case, I am of course alarmed. Is there a particular forum for stuff like this? Thanks!

    I would be very concerned if I were you!

    You sent money to someone, to open a bank account on your behalf in a foreign countrt?!

    You have to pay money for a visa in that country, not in your current country?! How will you obtain this visa, if it has been purchased in a foreign country, where you are not present? If you don't need this visa to enter the country, why are you applying for the visa now?

    Very odd.

    If I were you I'd ask about visas on the overseas forum.

    I hope it wasn't a scam but if it does turn out to be dodgy did you find the job ad for it on TES? If so important you tell TES. [ help@tesglobal.com ]
