    Annual Gi2c China internship scam season now starting. Beware university students!



    WARNING: GI2c is also known as Wiseway Global and Getin2China - 3 Variations of same FRAUD.


    Its that time of year again when thousands of gullible uni students will take the bait and pay thousands of dollars to chase a dream in China that almost always ends as a nightmare. Pay money to go work for free? Yep,and the best sales people in China convince dozens of people everyday to send their processing fee or deposit. This is an old scam that gets renewed every year, usually with a new angle or a new name. In 2016 Gi2c is using some new names and a lower up front fee but its still what is called a "legal scam" in China. Why? Because even though you get swindled out of a few thousand dollars, they are not breaking any laws in China!

    They have one convincing web site and sales pitch, but don't be fooled by the fabricated reviews and shill "testimonials". Here's what they hope you never see:

    You can get a real Fortune 500 internship in China for free but you have to do the paperwork yourself. See: http://freechinainternships.blogspot.ca

    Damn... I can't believe these vermin are still fleecing people after all the warnings and horror stories. Oh well, I guess some dummies have to learn the expensive way.

    A lot of very intelligent people get scammed. Don't think only "dummies" are victims. Some scams (including Gi2c) are very elaborate and sophisticated with beautiful web sites that look legitimate and reinforced with gobs of paid shill testimonials (like they have all over Quora and Google Adword links) and reviews that they write themselves. Without a doubt, Gi2C can probably fool even a few cops. If you read the above OP links and all the ones at realscam.com you will see that they even once set up a boiler-room in Pakistan and were telling people they called that they were calling from their non-existent London office!

    The people that get ripped off can't do squat unless they are willing to spend a small fortune to come back to China and sue them or go through the criminal court procedure which takes about 90 days. Would you spend $20,000 (the cost of 90 days accommodation and a Chinese lawyer) to recover the $5,000 - $10,000 they caused you to lose?
