"I noticed that a lot of these scam jobs start at SeriousTeachers.com

I have to give my concerns about SeriousTeachers.com scam. Beware of SeriousTeachers.com.

In my experience, I have posted 1 job ad on their site for the "free trial". Within  a few days, I received over 40-50 "form emails" about "interested teachers" though nowhere in the email was the teacher speaking directly to us about our ad. That being said, EVERY link in the email redirected me to a "pay" page to contact any teacher on the list. Funny enough, when we actually did contact some of the teachers, they had no idea who we were and after being directed to our ad, they stated they were not interested.

To me, this is a scam...they bait schools with 'interested' applicants and then ask for money to contact them. In addition, they allow absolutely NO information whatsoever to be communicated...with or without contact information.

+1 # SerioursTeacher s.com scamGuest 2010-07-20 02:50
I received this on SeriousTeachers .com and straight away it seems like a scam to me 3000GBP. I know that Moscow is the most expensive place in the world. But in Russia the average wage is between $500-1000 for teachers. It seems to me another variation on the Nigerian scam, I know if I respond to it there would be a cost for visa or something. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Seriosteachers. com does not screen any of the individuals on their site. It is overwhelmed with scammers. Don't trust the people on this site that offer positions.
+3 # RE: Serious Teachers.comKim Feltham 2012-01-17 20:09
I have found my teaching positions in two different occasions by posting my profile on serious teachers.
My current position in China is to recruit teachers for my school and I have also been using serriousteacher s.com for placing our vacant positions. I found the site to be very reliable by filtering all job offer ads and teachers. The site also offers a lot of useful features both for employers and teachers.
I honestly find no validity in any of the previous comments.

This is nonsense. Jobs on Serious Teachers are all paid ads and completely vetted. They have people working on their site 24/7 and has more screening than anyone in the industry as well as clear cut privacy policies. What you have to watch is when a job site is free for posters. Those are the ones filled with scam jobs and emails open everywhere. Obviously a competitor making a statement such as that to mislead people.
