I just got this update from my friend who is in a similar situation with another different school playing the same game. I hope someone arrests this guy. The link is sell explanatory. http://open.salon.com/blog/china_business_central/2013/01/30/china_foreign_teachers_union_exposes_extortion_by_principals

I told my bud to go public on Weibo as well but they convinced him he will be put on a teacher's blacklist and will never get another visa in China for making waves. They really have the upperhand in every game foreigners are allowed to play here. I can't wait for the English version of Weibo to go online in May.

I started to do some digging on Shane English since I read that link from 2 days ago and these guys have one loooooooong rap sheet that goes back to 2003! Here are just some of the links:

I also found 18 broken links to various complaints. I suspect they paid a hacker to kill those threads. Most were in Japan. One guy mentions a lawsuit but there are no details. Also the owner Shane Lipscombe is not allowed to enter the country of Thailand and Shane English's permits were revoked there. Does anyone know why?

Get a life Bruce/Anthony. Your scammy little sites you run are pathetic and no matter how many places you post or fake accounts you make, it doesn't change that simple fact. Greatly looking forward to your federal prison term once your passport expires.

Do a quick Google search for Bruce Anthony Gorcyca aka Anthony DiMarco aka Tony DiMarco aka Tony DeMarco aka Tony D. Marco aka Bruce DiMarco

Enough out there that it should be rather obvious.

Chrikey, sounds like a real charmer, so how does such a person get caught up with an English school boss in China?
