Many foreigners come to China because teaching jobs are easy to get and the economy is booming. BUT, every foreigner who comes here become a target for scam artists who try to sell you things you do not need and want to be your "agent". 20% of them are identity thieves and the other 80% will try to enroll you into an expensive and unneeded TEFL or TESOL training program.

The other con artists will promise you a Z visa (work visa) and even a job but if they tell you that you must first come to China as a tourist on an L visa or on an M visa, or a X visa (business and student visa) they are liars. Once you get here they will demand a big fee or threaten to have you arrested for working illegally. In the end they want 40%-50% of your salary to stay quiet and let you stay in China.
