Switch my job without my knowledge or consent and refused my demand for a refund.
These sly bastards promised me a $50,000 job placement with BMW in Beijing and even arranged a fake Skype interview with "Klaus Meuller" who was supposed to be the HR Director at the BMW assembly plant. After I paid my money and spent $3,000 to move to Beijing and another $2,000 to rent an apartment, I was told that BMW "reorganized" and decided to hire a bilingual local Chinese and they regretted they only found out the day I arrived. They then refused to refund my money or pay my ticket back home and kept insisting they would get me another "top job" and I should do some English training while I wait for the new job. I was not interested in being a trainer. I went to file a complaint with the cops but they said they were "familiar" with Laowai Career Center and I should read my contract.
When I read the fine print of my contract it said their legal obligation to me ends the day I accept their job offer - not the day I actually start working! I then called BMW in Beijing and asked to speak with Klaus Meuller. I was told no such person ever worked there! When I went back to talk with the owner of Laowai Career Center, they would not buzz me in and told me the owner was at a trade show in Shanghai. I asked for the name of the trade show and there was silence.

They obtain your resume from brokers and then contact you claiming you applied for one of the jobs they represent in China. (I did no such thing). They get you interested in a great paying job that does not really exist. Their website is very well done and convincing because they copy and paste real job ads from big and well-known companies on to their website. They also use fake reviews and "testimonials" explained at scam.com here https://www.scam.com/entry.php?6418-Beware-of-China-s-many-Legal-Scams-like-Lawoai-Career-Center-Job-Fraud-Targeting-Expats.
After they convince you to pay a processing fee they get you an L or F or M visa invitation letter by telling you to lie on your visa application which is actually a crime. After they get your money, and you arrive in China they tell you that your employer wants a copy of your university diploma. If you don't have one like me, they sell you one for $1,500. I must say it looks genuine to me - even with the gold seal.
After you spend a bunch of money to get to China and rent an apartment, and buy their counterfeit diploma, you are told that the wonderful nob you applied for is "no longer available"
Since I had $380 left to my name and stuck in China, I was desperate and worried especially after I found out that I really needed a Z visa to work legally. They offered me some teaching jobs with schools that are not approved by SAFEA and are blacklisted. I refused the jobs and asked for a refund so I could go back home. The owner Yuri just told me to read the terms and conditions on my contract.
Because they offered me "a job in China" within 30 days I was not entitled to a refund. They basically screwed me and caused me to spend over $5,000 and lose 2 months of my life. I found these links online this morning: http://www.shanghaiexpat.com/phpbbforum/topic201589.html?sid=717eb9fccfa583391a882bcd4d32711a
and here is another China scam called Gi2c owned by the same guy! https://www.scamorg.com/gi2c-org-38
Pleas warn all the uni students which are their number one target.

Bait and Switch to undesirable jobs
This company is a China job fraud scam that offers you big red juicy apples and after you pay a processing fee, puts you into another job that you did not apply for and did not want - usually after you get to China. I found out from the victims that sometimes if people refuse to pay the processing fee they collect a fee from the employer and sometimes they even collect money from both ends if they can. But the point is that people travel around the world thinking they will get a good-paying job (in my case teaching for 18,000 RMB a month) but after spending $2,000 to get to China and another $1,000 to rent an apartment, I was told that the employer could not wait any longer and hired a more qualified candidate. They give an insincere apology and push you to take another job that pays half the salary in the countryside.
They promise to find me another 18,000 RMB job in Beijing or Shanghai but never did. So now I ended up with a really shitty job in Gansu, Province. I am now saving up enough money to buy an airplane ticket to go back home. I have lost $3,299 and my job back home in America to do this because I was told that I would make $3,000 a month. It is all a big lie and yesterday my sister sent me this link: http://www.opnlttr.com/letter/... and said there are many other complaints online that are like this one.
She also says that the Russian owner Yuri has a long record of complaints for five different scams that were used to trap foreign students and graduates in the past. These older scams were called Gi2c, Getin2China, WiseWay Global, and Olympic Escort Service which are explained at scam.com and RippOffReport.com
