Hmm... I actually replied to their advert a few weeks ago on a job site and now see they are posting on other job sites.

I wish I had kept the guy's reply. It was a classic. In very badly written English he offered my Thai wife and I teaching posts at this international school (What! They hadn't even bothered to read my cover letter properly!). I'm surprised they didn't offer my three month old son a job too.

The offer is amazing. Tons of loot per month, free housing, great benefits etc. I became a tad wary when I could find no information whatsoever listed on this 'school' via the net.

Anyway, ignore this 'school'... unless you fancy a bit of fun. See how long you can keep the scam-artist hanging on - scam the scamster! Rolling Eyes

Funny enough, there are at least two international schools in Lekki, including the Lekki British International High School (http://www.lekkibritishhigh.com/lbihs/?selectlist=lbihs%2F). Neither of them give such fantastic benefits as this scammer was touting though Smile

Moral: "trust, then verify", as Ronald Reagan used to say.

if theres any doubt (which with a little thought, there generally shouldnt be) about the authenticity of such job offers, ive found that if you simply google the email address they give, the first or second site listed on the first result page will usually identify it as a scammer's address or otherwise. my tuppence worth.
