329 China Foreign Teachers Arrested For Using Fake TEFL Certificates in April of 2017…

arrest-suspect

As a Public Service Announcement, we are releasing the below information to confirm to all TEFL teachers inbound to China, that the Chinese government is dead serious about enforcing their fairly new “FALSE DOCUMENTS LAW”. This new law was originally design and intended to stop, or at least reduce the quantity of counterfeit goods (mostly designer luxury consumer items like handbags, sunglasses, shoes, etc) being shipped abroad by attaching huge penalties and prison sentences to those using fake manifests, shipping documents, and use of government seals.

But after the child of a Chinese Deputy Minister of Education was found being taught by a fake English teacher (supposedly from America, but really from the Ukraine), a crusade was launched by the Chinese government to track down, arrest, and deport the estimated 10,000 fake teachers now working in China.  So when this popped up online, we were not at all surprised MORE TEACHERS ARRESTED We decided to touch base with our PSB insider contact (recently promoted to rank of Colonel) that we interviewed two years ago (scroll down to read that story). We were advised of the following efforts being made by the PSB in recent months

1.) INCREASED PSB VISA SQUAD BUDGET INCREASED BY 12% TO HIRE 360 MORE INSPECTORS TO CONDUCT RANDOM VISA & DOCUMENT CHECKS AT SCHOOLS.

2.) THE PURCHASE OF 350 NEW 4G VISA SCANNERS TO BE USED BY BEIJING POLICE     IN PUBS, RESTAURANTS, BARS, AND SUBWAY STATIONS TO DETECT ILLEGAL Z VISAS. WHAT IS AN ILLEGAL Z VISA?  READ:  ILLEGAL Z VISAS

3.) COMPLETE DOCUMENT CHECK DURING RANDOM SCHOOL VISITS. AS WE  RECENTLY DISCOVERED THEY ARE NOW CHECKING NOT ONLY VISAS, BUT IF DIPLOMAS, POLICE CERTIFICATES, AND TEFL CERTIFICATES FOR VALIDITY. IF  ANY ONE DOCUMENT TURNS OUT TO BE COUNTERFEIT, THE TEACHER WILL BE ARRESTED AND DEPORTED AS THOSE ARRESTED BELOW CAN VERIFY.

4.) STARTING IN SEPTEMBER, 20!7 ALL SCHOOLS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PUBLISH AND POST A DOCUMENT ON THE WALL OF THE SCHOOL STATING THE LEGAL NAME OF THEIR TEACHERS, THEIR CITIZENSHIP,  PASSPORT NO. DEGREE HELD AND FROM WHICH UNIVERSITY.  A PARENT WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO INSPECT A SCAN OF THAT STUDENT’S PASSPORT, DIPLOMA, & POLICE CERTIFICATE UPON REQUEST, ALTHOUGH NO COPIES WILL BE FURNISHED.

5.) A JOINT TASK FORCE WITH SAFEA, PSB, AND LOCAL POLICE ARE NOW FORMING TO BEGIN A “TEACHER CREDENTIAL REVIEW” OF ALL FOREIGN TEACHERS ADMITTED  TO CHINA BEFORE JANUARY 1ST, 2016 AS A “QUALITY CONTROL MEASURE”. THIS WILL ALSO ENTAIL VERIFICATION OF ALL DIPLOMAS AND TEFL CERTIFICATES PRESENTED BY THE TEACHERS.

At the local level, we are told that the Beijing and Shanghai Police Departments will start airing PSA radio and television announcements promoting their “Peoples Patriot Reward Program” to confidentially report any foreigner working illegally in China or suspected to be a spy. The reward has been increased to 15,000 last January from 10,000 rmb.
