I received this in my email a few days ago. I have a resume posted on ESL world. I thought it was a legitimate job offer. Unfortunately I followed steps and completed their test, essay and made a video intro for them. This scam REALLY concerns me. There is an elaborate website with pictures, history of company. Very convincing! Until they ask for $220 for shipping charges to send you "free" student materials. I was sent a very official looking contract and all. I googled info and found nothing. I am posting this info anywhere I can. This needs to be shared with as many ESL/online groups & people as possible. I am discovering the more sophisticated we become at detecting scams, the more sophisticated they become. Please be careful and share. Thank you.
