|Just a quick shout out to warn you of these guys.
I did some work for them for a few months to fill in hours, everything seemed ok, I agreed to work for 2 months. Then it came round to pay...
They said pay on the 16th, which seemed rather late but I was told 'nothing can be done.' so I accepted it.
16th comes around...uh-oh, nothing, I send messages, I get some BS reply 'in a few days', 'our agent in Xi'an hurt her leg.'
Eventually I refuse to work a day for not being paid, so the woman calls my wife and begs me to go to work, I refuse. Finally I get paid on the 30th!
Next month comes around, 16th, nothing, I send a message asking why I haven't been paid, nothing, my wife calls, and is now blocked by the 'agent' in Xi'an.
I then call the Beijing office, nothing, they refuse my call and don't reply to my messages.
They don't hold alot, perhaps 4-5000 RMB that I am owed, but I'm forewarning anyone here DO NOT WORK FOR THEM. There is zero excuse not to pay me[I am owed money from April!] and it's now mid June.
I even noticed the adverts post the same number but with 3 or 4 different names, the woman in Xi'an is Selena, they have many different teaching jobs, Kindies, Primary, Business etc. Just ignore them. It's not worth the hassle.
If the number 13520291156 comes up on an advert OR you see Nancy International, avoid at all costs please, it's a scam.
I know I won't see the money, and they've pocketed it, and it's not worth calling the police because this is China, but I thought the least I could do was not see another foreigner taken advantage of.
