Hi All....me again....I have recently seen OZEL CENT KOLEJI advertising on another website....plzzzzz be informed that I think this is a major scam....There were a number of teachers that were offered the job and told to pay 500$ for the processing of the work permit....Once we voiced our concerns all communication with the school stopped!!

A friend in Istanul called the school (which does exist) but the REAL director told us that he has no employees called Dr.Ozlem Bulut nor a Mr.D. Daniel......also that THEY have not advertised for teachers......

I hope this helps everyone.....

Plzzz keep me posted about their response to you since I have spoken to the Turkish Ministry and they want to be updated too.

Yes. It seems that the website www.ozelkent.4t.com is fake, and the fax / phone number given in the advertisement on that other TEFL website is not that of the real Cent Koleji. The fact that it is the same number for fax and phone is a real give-away - a prestigious school such as this would certainly have separate numbers for fax and phone.

The website for the real Cent Koleji is www.centkoleji.com , and anyone interested can find their real fax and phone numbers on the home page.

Hello, you two!
couldn't believe the fake ozel cent college is up to the same thing again. I wonder how many more teachers they are going to get this time!! My friend in Istanbul tried to contact the culture department in istanbul and hope some action will be taken soon.

I think its a scam, I applied there too and was told they would process my application for $350 USD... anyone who wants to employ someone should cover these costs... they also mentioned 'prestigious' a little to frequently for my liking... "


Looks like Ozlem Bulut and Daniel Dick are on the move again but this time they charge the teachers with USD 350.......Shame, when will they stop....this makes me really angry
