CRCCasia.com aka CRCC China Internships Classic Bait & Switch Scam That Targets University Grads & The Unemployed With Phony China Internships Beijing & London Internet
This is an old scam with dozen of people who have already been victimized complained. I am just a new victim I suppose. This company collects $3,000 from idiots like me who were naive enough to believe that any company featured in the New York Times must be legitimate. I now see that the reporter who wrote the article is a Chinese who was probably paid off (like every reporter in China) to glorify the company with the advertorial which is disguised to look like a feature article.
Anyway I was promised to get a three month internship with a well known international magazine as an assistant editor. After I paid my fee ($3,000) and spent another $3,000 on my plane tickets, visa, and apartment rental in Shanghai, then and only then do I realize I was had. The great internship I paid for is no longer available (it was already taken by another intern) but "not to worry - now that you are in China, we have another great internship for you!" This turned out to be a job posting internet ads for a Chinese company that I suspect is a fraud since nobody at that company would tell me their real Chinese name or give me business card!
CRCC has 5 different ways to collect your payment but not a single way to give you a refund. [continued below]....
People at Scam.com say that that CRCC is registered to a fake company that does not exist and others say tha the company's web site went online in 2011 even though Eva told me they have thousands of happy clients since 2006.
Why did I believe them? Look at their awesome website, all those fake YouTube video testimonials and fake review sites and you will see I bought the illusion - NOT the reality! These b*stards are super slick con artists and nothing more.
