This is just too coincidental to be ignored. This link explains the PSB visa and diploma fraud sting going on right now in China: http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?t=635700
The PSB (visa police force) set up a fake company (New World ESL) and ran a bunch of fake job ads offering great pay and benefits to foreign teachers. Those that send in resumes get called for interviews at the same office building adjacent to the Poly Theater in Beijing. During the interview, teacher must display their passports and diplomas and a short but artificial interview takes place. Nobody gets hired but so far 89 foreign teacher got arrested for not having Z visas in their passports or for using fake university degrees or TEFL certificates.
Now get this... all the ads used for the sting were posted on Echinacities.com, which so coincidentally was not long ago caught selling resumes by the hundreds to third party recruiters for $100 each by China Scam Patrol. Further the owner of Echinacities.com is a member of the Chinese Communist Party even though he openly brags that he is a Canadian citizen, which if true, is illegal in China. (All CCP members must be Chinese citizens and China does not allow dual citizenship)
Now my logic tells me the authorities moved in on ECC and told Xu - "Cooperate or you're going to prison". A loyal party member does not say "no" to Big Red in China. Maybe he even agreed to sell the resumes to the police. But the point is this... victims saw the ads at Echinacities.com and uploaded their resumes to Echinacities.com and now almost 100 of them were busted an being deported currently.
