beware of fake recruiters, especially at this time of year.
I have been spammed by many: a former employer sold my email address and i am being spammed by fake recruiters who are only after your personal information (passport info etc.)

Some try to offer you work by promising that you can arrive in China to work on an 'F' or 'L' visa, and they claim that they can convert it to the correct visa when you arrive.

this is illegal so do not fall for it.

I can supply a list of so called-fake recruiters who have spammed me over the last month.

Be careful !

Well, I know there have been some changes but I know when I came a couple of years ago you did not come to China on a Z-visa, the only legal work visa.  There are business visas that you can do business on and make money but to "work" you need a Z-visa and you get that at the local city you work in.  I know some who got it in a different city than where they work but you're not supposed to do that.

By the way, there is no Chinese law limiting age (other than be at least 18) but the local Gestapo will not give you one if you are over 60.

I know your e-mail address is likely to be shared that way.

I think the best is to shame and nam ...

Beijing Magic Education is another fake recruiter.
They don't respond to even the most basic questions on work terms and conditions, and there is no mention of the visa they offer.

these are red flag issues for anyone thinking of working in China.
