    This school offered me a job. When I accepted my contact told me to send all my visa paperwork to a lawyer he worked with. After I did that he told me to contact his airline contact. The airline contact then told me I had to wire her money for the ticket. She came up with reasons why I couldn't buy a ticket through the airline and had to send money to personal accounts. When I suggested using a "visa reservation" she said that wouldn't work. I responded that the Spanish consulate had suggested it and I haven't heard from any of them since. I suspect that the school manager, lawyer and airline employee were all the same person, but they could have just been working together.

    Something very similar happened to me regarding Berlingua:   They sent me an email saying they had no vacancies in Spain, but that their school in Milan, Italy, would contact me. All of this striked me as very odd, since I never applied to work at Berlingua. A few days later, I received a job description from MT Languages, as follows: Job Details.

I did send them my resume, out of curiosity, an even had an interview! It lasted 6 min and 33 seconds, and it ended with the "recruiter" complimenting my English way too much, while his sounded a bit off.   I've added some screenshots I took from the e-mails, where you'll notice how cleverly and on plain sight they disguise their e-mail adresses.
