|Some of my info is guesswork, the rest is based on knowledge.
First the fuzzy:
The USA-based recruiter you mentioned is unknown to me, as is its MAOMING partner. Now here is what I feel you need to know:
There is a certain "training centre" there with which I had had some correspondence over a year ago. In my opinion, it was a trap. The training centre repeatedly advertised on a website which offered free advertising. Now if someone saves advertising costs, they can afford to place adverts as often as they like, right? And, isn't this an invitation to abusing this privilege?
Soon they offered a job that paid an astounding salary.
I got somewhat sceptical when I read that the guy in charge there passed himself off as an Aussie. Now his English was telltale Chinese English.
As for MAOMING, I absolutely take the view this is not a place people want to end up! Oh, it is not like Mumbai - spread out. It is somewhat compact and smallish. It does not have major polluting industries. It simply is a backwater in western Guangdong, half-way between Guangzhou and Hainan Island. It is neither scenic, historically interesting nor conveniently located to visit any other place.
In other words:
A less-than trustworthy employer in a lacklustre place!
Choose some other location - and you will not regret it as much as this one!
