  • TLS - Top Language School Scam for teaching in Italy -

    Applied to them because of the great salary, then almost fell for paying for visa but then I remembered the advice from this site about too good to be true so I checked them out.  Yes, many say it is a scam with little/no interview and then a request for money for the visa and a phone number that doesn't add up for Italy. Plus Italy is impossible to get visas for non-EU members.  Then I saw the TLS Top Language School Website which is pretty empty.

    This is their website:

    And a thread talking about the scam going back to 2014: 

    Here is the ad:

    Our English School is interested in receiving applications from dedicated teachers who wish to develop as EFL/ESL professionals whilst contributing to the schools reputation for learner-centred foreign language teaching. Applicants must possess a desire to live in Spain.

    TESall Group Admin looked at the school name (TLS-Top Language School) after they paid for a premium posting. The previous free job ad, like the premium paid job ad, simply didn’t look legitimate so we did some research and found a major red flag warning. When looking further, the key is the phone number used: +390694801641 which appears for numerous language school recruitment going back to 2004 under various school names: John Milton Institute (in 2004): TLS-Top Language Schools (in 2008) and Lord Byran College (in 2009): Linguarama Roman (in 2012): The British Language Centre (in 2013): Inlingua Ferrera (in 2014):
