    This was a suggestion made by many including the staff of China Scam Watch which did a recent survey that revealed 78% of expats now teaching in China admitted they were cheated or swindled one way or another since arriving in China. Granted, most foreigners coming to work in China are frequently caught off-guard by not only street vendors, but their own job recruiters, and sometimes even their own employers, all of whom try to skim from expats.

    Of the some 600,000 foreigners now working in China, about 30,000 of them are foreign teachers. Although the foreign teachers receive salaries that average $22,000 per year, they are still the lowest-paid expats in China, but the most targeted for various scams and schemes.

    So with what started as a joke, has grown into an actual IQ Test that China Scam Watch will send to anyone for free to make sure they are made aware of the 37 China scams that target foreign workers in China. A sample of the three part test can be found at http://www.esl-jobs-forum.com/viewto...?p=14512#14512 Also see httP://ChinaScamWatch.org
