En Guard! Be Aware of Recruiting Scams

Concordia International School does not ask or require any candidates to send money for application fees, visas, or any other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Shanghai. If you have been asked by Concordia Shanghai or another international school to send money to cover such costs, you may be the target of an elaborate scam. Several international schools have had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send money as part of the scam. All candidates are urged to use extreme caution if they have been asked for money or private information.
