      These guys are really bad news. They offered me a job I never applied for and then lied about how they got my resume and refused to tell me who owned their company and where their office was located.  When I said that a lot of people were saying they are the old Gi2c China scam, the guy said he never heard of Gi2c. He said his name was "Paul" but he refused to give me his last name. When I said I wanted to come by and meet him at his office, he claimed "I am busy all this week". So I suggested we make an appointment "next week" and he actually got upset and told "Just do as I say if you want this job because we do not have to meet".  I really did not like his pushy attitude so I hung up the phone and told buddy about all this. About an hour later he sent me this link:  https://eslwatch.info/en/forum/china/117-fraud-warning-gi2c-and-other-china-job-internship-scams-beware-people.html and told me that same owner of this scam also owned Laowai Career Center.  When I saw the photo of Mr. Y I realized my friend was right. These are scam artists folks.

      I just want everyone to know that Laowai Career Center which says they are based in Hangzhou is a sophisticated scam that will say anything they have to in order to get your signature on their contract. They bait and switch teachers all the time and even cheat their own employees who spill their guts at http://eslwatch.info/foru/china.  At this link you will find 36 reviews from customers who LCC never mentions. Read this and try to guess why! http://opnlttr.com/letter/laowai-career-center-really-china-job-scam-using-many-aliases-here-are-36-reviews-you-be   Warn your friends that they also use 4 alias company names that we know of - so far: Gi2c, Wiseway Global Education, Getin2China, and Laowai Career Center.  If you google these sly bastards at Reddit you will find the real truth about this gang.
