I was just sent this link by a veteran user at Scam.com and what a shell game this may turn out to be! I recall that about a year ago there was a "Sino Education Group" that was linked to a Chinese government official at fraudwatchers and I am wondering if this is the same group that was deleting posts and blocking websites to protect that official? Then again it may not be the same people. But since George Xu is communist party guy and we seem to have another new "informant" in the game, who knows??? I am quoting from the below link in italics below:
"I have been recently corresponding with CSP and a current and former employee of Echinacities.com through a different ESL forum and they tell me that Sinocities is one of the primary buyers of resumes sent by foreign teacher applicants since March of 2014. Here is part of the email I received...
"A colleague of mine at ECC mentioned to manager E.S. that a foreign teacher accused sinocities of being partners with an identity thief, and she (E.S.) just replied. Don't worry about it we used a third company so there are no inks to us (ECC)"
The information I received is that although sinocities.com does in fact make job placements, I cannot find any business license issued to them in that name and according to the employee source, after 30 days, the resumes are sold to the highest bidder which are unvetted second and third tier Chinese recruiters. Here is the data on the Sinocities.com web site ownership:

CSP say they made a similar discovery that they are now investigating. Btw... HICHINA ZHICHENG TECHNOLOGY LTD. is not licensed to do HR work nor are they authorized to recruit nor hire foreigners. They are just a web host helping to create the maze of unaccountability - another middleman and link in the chain of deceit as they have a historical history of hosting scams. Just google "HICHINA ZHICHENG TECHNOLOGY LTD. scam" and the results speak for themselves.
My information is that CSP has asked China's Anti-Corruption to investigate both Echinacities.com and Sinocities.com and ********* has provided all the emails from their common qq address firstname.lastname@example.org. I will report updates as I get them.
From what I see in China, companies simply do not bother to check the reputation nor license of their clients - they just take the money and provide service - no questions asked."
