Warning! Getin2China & Gi2C are the same China Internship - Beware!Watch
Maybe by now they are using another name so if someone spots a new name for the same thing, please post it here. Basically you all need to know that the real China internships are all free and if anyone asks you to pay money for a job or internship in China.
Can you please stop promoting those scam Wordpress blogs "China Scam Patrol" even don't have any legal registration. Who believe all that??? And Student room support all this scam activity...
A lot of foreign scam artists use China as their base of operations with call centers in other countries to confuse the legal jurisdictions. Gi2c operated call centers in Pakistan since 2013 and make their customers send their payments to Hong Kong, while their office is in Beijing! Even if Gi2c was not a fraud, China internships were outlawed for most foreigners in 2013, and the only ones still legal in China require that you get a special certification letter from the PSB before you apply for your visa as per this newsbit here: http://www.balglobal.com/News/NewsDe...-Students.aspx
"36 Universities Deny Gi2c China Internship Partnership - Scam?
I have been laid up healing from an accident in a leg cast so I have spent a lot of time on line lately. I saw this link at another site http://eslwatch.info/forum/china/167-up ... n.html#496 and found it hard to believe that any company would claim to be "partners" with big name universities if they were not. So I decided to call a few and check myself. So I started with Duke and was connected with the international office after I explained why I was calling. They said they had no idea what Gi2c is and they said they searched their entire Duke database and found no reference nor cooperation in file.
Rutgers was next on my list and they were downright pissed off that some unknown company was using their name to create false credibility. So I kept dialing and over the next 2 hours got my money's worth on my Skype account... I called every university listed in the Gi2c brochure as their "partner". I was not able to get a human on the phone at Howard and Tufts University however. But all the others, without exception, denied any connection with Gi2c and three of them said their legal departments had already taken action to stop the misrepresentation.
Now I also see that they claimed to represent "over 400 international MNC in China" so maybe someone can see if that is also a bogus claim because Gi2c did not answer my email when I asked them to send me a list of these 400 companies."
