Akademi in Diyarbakir does exist, but they don't like you asking too many questions. See comments posted by Sammy in Job Information Journal "Akademi Turkiye - Diyarbakir - Be Careful".

I replied to one of their advertisments last year out of curiosity - I had no intention of going - and I can concur with Sammy. After all the deductions the net salary would have worked out at no more than about GBP 300. My e-mails requesting clarification on certain points (e.g. is the accommodation fully furnished and equipped, would they reimburse my air-fare London-Istanbul-Diyarbakir on my arrival?) went unanswered.

I find it is the UNANSWERED questions always an
indicator of deception. In fact, without fail. And usually, it
gets worse from there. Laughing

OK its not a scam. It physically exists. Ive met ex students who were told that if they hadnt learnt English in three months they would get a refund......... I had an interview on site. I would NEVER work there. Especially as a woman . See my comments on finding a job in Eastern Turkey
