    Scam PSA U.S. Arts & Design in Beijing China is fake American franchise Beware art teacher


    There is a famous art school in Irvine, California that won many awards for creative arts education, and one of their former teachers named Susan Fu (Chinese American from Taiwan) stole the good name and reputation and took it to China where parents in Beijing are told the U.S. Arts and Design school in Beijing is a franchise of the famous California school. This is absolutely false - there is no connection other than the former teacher. If anyone knows Chinese please post it because parents and foreign art teachers are all getting cheated for big bucks.

    The logos were identical until a few weeks ago when they changed slightly in China. Here is the website of the real U.S. Arts & Design art school in Irvine... http://www.usartsdesign.com/

    Foreign English teachers in China are being recruited by the fake franchise and are told they can be fully trained art teachers after only 1 month because "the students are little kids who will never know the difference if their teachers have any art teaching experience or not." So i guess there are two sets of victims here... the Chinese parents as consumers, and the foreign teachers as employees, some of which reported being screwed out of their pay, being tricked into working without a work visa, and having fake taxes deducted from their paychecks.

    I guess China will forever be the leader in fake goods and services.

    You know a lot of women knowingly buy all the fake designer handbags and shoes and love the Chinese for making them. IRL they cannot afford to buy a pair of $3,000 shoes or a Prada purse for $2,000. The Chinese are filling a niche market of millions of women around the world.
