Scam number one- some scum in Malaga are advertising for English teachers at a reputable and existing school in Murcia.
Very plausible, sending contracts from a 'barrister' called David Adams.
THEN they ask for money for a visa and up front accommodation expenses. The legitimate schools are aware of the scam, but it seems that it is all aimed at non EU citizens!!!!

There is a school at Puerto Santa Maria, just outside Cadiz, advertising for 'Language Assistants'. Now my experience is from when they were advertising for teachers and I can advise that if you want to take a couple of days off work and lose pay and fork out for the journey to London, for an 'interview' then please apply. It all keeps the Director of English studies amused while she is on her jollies in England.

Do not apply for, nor accept, any jobs offered by the Norman International Academy, of Malaga, Spain. The school does not exist. Adverts for jobs there are an attempt at extortion. After a scam online interview following the submission of documents and so on, you will be accepted for a job but then asked to send money for accommodation (spelled incorrectly in the offer email along with many other literals and errors) and/or visas. Do not, repeat NOT, send them any money. It will be the last you see of it - or them. You will be asked to send the money to the company barrister davidfreeman. The 'director' is a man called Isaac Heskel.
You have been warned.
