Warning: Don't fall for the ED Visa trick!

Recommended Posts

How can you possibly think this only SEEMS to be a scam? There is no pay for your day's work. 

 

How much did he ask you to deposit on his account? Did you?

ED visa is for students, not teachers.

i wouldnt give my money to anyone i dont know home address on,

so i would insist on meeting him in his condo for any payment,

i would make it a deal breaker

I chose my words carefully. And yes, he earlier mentioned 18,000 baht for a year-long ED Visa.

Why bother, as you said yourself, ED visas are for people who want to study, not for teaching.

 

Don't waste any more time with the african, move on.

Let the authorities take care of him.

 

Teachers working without work permit (or salary), ED visa scam. Labour Dept and Immigration Police will know how to deal with him.

Careful with your generilisation John donut , I have so far not heard of a South African ( maybe through ignorance you think Africa is a country ) that has overstayed their visa . I for one was in Thailand for 2.5 years , just returned to my beautiful country , and never had one immigration problem in Thailand , no border runs , just good old legal visa backed up with sufficient funds .

I am currently looking for a teaching job. Perhaps more hopeful than on guard, I fell for a scam, exercised by a South African (judging by the accent) guy with a Dutch name. He contacted me by phone, after I had answered a job advert on Craigslist. He asked me to travel to a school, where he was supposed to meet me, which he didn't.. I worked there all day. In the evening the guy called me (I had still not had a chance to meet him in person), asking me whether I'd be interested to get an ED Visa, to which I agreed. He then asked me to send him copies of my passport, visa, and photo. He sent me a copy of the information page of his bankbook, asking me for a deposit for the visa, without even having possession of my passport. - It seems to me that this is a scam! My dilemma is now, how, without even a written employment contract, can I get my hands on the pay for my day's work?

Write it off to experience

Welcome to Thailand --A Hotspot for Scammers

...and apparently a hub for those gullible enough to fall for the most obvious scam and who then rush to Thai Visa to demonstrate how credulous they are.

South is a geographical region of a country or location. Maybe he's not South African but just another low-life, scumbag, scammer from Africa or its gene pool.

With a dutch name ?  Then he is a white S.African.

Most likely he didn't give his correct name.
