It has come to our attention that teachers are receiving fraudulent offers via email or even by telephone.
The inquiries are from scammers purportedly wanting you to teach students who are coming from the US, UK, etc. - or even from Toronto. The person will offer to send you a cashier's cheque. It will often be a too-good-to-be-true figure (for perhaps a long term contract) and they will ask you to wire transfer an amount back to them.
The cheques will be fraudulent.
By the time your bank figures this out (after you have wired the scammer the money), the thief will have disappeared with your money.
Another variant is that they will ask for your bank account details (!!) so they can supposedly transfer the amount to you.
Please beware! Simply ignore these fraudulent inquiries.
