Teachers Searching for International Employment Opportunities - Beware of Potential Recruiting Scams
ASFG has been alerted by schools in various parts of the world that teachers seeking overseas employment have been approached by various individuals or groups running scams and requesting money.
These individuals/groups claim to be a reputable school (or assume the identity of an existing, reputable school) and ask teachers and/or administrators seeking overseas employment to send them money to assist in the payment of a work visa, interview or application fees, plane tickets, or other recruitment related costs. Please know that no legitimate school will ask any teacher or administrator to pay them to obtain a job and/or work visa. If you have been asked by an international school to send money to cover such costs, you are probably the target of an elaborate scam. Be aware that these fraudulent activities seem to be becoming more frequent. Do not send money or pass on banking information to any school seeking professionals to come work with them.
All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions related to the recruitment process at ASFG.
