Dear Fat Chris

I am willing to share in my good fortune with you but need certain information. Bla Bla Bla

Does anyone get taken in ? I suppose they do. The world is a strange place !

Does anyone get taken in? (I have been wondering this as well.) Surely not, but on second thought...

Warm regards,

I've always wondered about those emails I've gotten that claim I can make 3000 a month teaching English to an exec's children from the inside of a luxury compound in the Swat Valley of Pakistan where I'll have to wear a kevlar vest and a hockey jersey with a large Canadian flag to dispel my Americaness.

Can the possibly be real?

Of course not. They are produced by one of the countless Scam Factories in West Africa.

On a more serious note... there are ESL opportunities here, especially in the French speaking countries. I've found work very quickly and easily. However, I'm not sure that a native English speaker of African, Caribbean or Asian background would find it so easy. There's an attitude in Africa that education is something that can only be conferred by Europeans. Image is also all important - having one or two white faces at your school gets you a lot of cachet.
BTW, West Africans are scamming or attempting to scam, each other, not only newbie teachers. I know of one case where a parent was cheated out of several hundred dollars.
