Anyone here have any information about a company called "british international language center"? I am unable to find any information on this company E.even after searching blogs, forums, and web pages, I am unable to find anything about this company. The only thing I was able to come across was want adds at several websites.

My questions are: Is it a credible company? Has anyone ever worked for them, and If so what was it like? Has anyone ever had any problems witm them?

Thanks for the info in advanced.

SCAM!!!!!! British International language center cotonou BENIN.

I have replied to this job and it is a scam. I have checked with the BENIN embassy and there are no language schools in Benin. They are asking for a returnable deposit of $800 with host other lies to make giving over this money seem like it is neccesary.
Please do not waste your time filling in there detailed interview questionaire. The scam is fairly eleborate and well set up so dont be fooled.

SCAM!!!!! SCAM!!!!! SCAM!!!!!! SCAM!!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM1!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!!! SCAM!!!!

I spent two years in Benin (2002-2004) as a volunteer teacher with IFESH and I never heard of any language schools in the country. I know there is a British school in Cotonou but it is an international K-12 school, not a language school. The children of my boss attended that school.

I agree that it sounds like a scam.
