Very kind of you to warn the unwary!

I'd be curious which of these details differs from the real offers (which I understand you no longer have). The salary and benefits seem inflated, but not wildly so, particularly given that the ad lists no actual formal qualifications needed - to a newbie, it would likely be believable.

I don't know what the real message looks like. I saw on the Facebook page for the school that it was a scam. I've asked a few people about it since I'm new to TESOL and had my doubts as I've heard of several scams. Since they said no one in Italy give severance and they were granting a lot more than usual sum for payment. I just thought I'd warn people incase anyone got a fake email.

Dear all,
I am the secretary here at The British Language Centre.
I just wanted to confirm that is true that we are not recruiting at the moment and that, above all, we NEVER ask teachers to pay any kind of fee in order to secure employment with us!
Best regards
