    Dodgy or what.

    Long story short I've been tentatively offered a gig in Thailand.
    The offer goes a bit like this.
    Fly in to Thailand for 2 weeks every month and manage a 'project' .
    Fly in, manage a project for 2 weeks and fly out.
    The problem lies in getting specifics on 'manage' and 'project'.
    Now you know as much as I.
    What do you think, should I take it?
    And before the usual suspects bring up the whole work visa thing, I know.
    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    Why would you even contemplate a contract when they won't tell you what it involves?

    What's your background?
    Why are the recruiters after you specifically?

    Where did I say I was contemplating it.
    And I doubt there'd be a 'contract' involved.

    I can assure you it's all above board, and I look forward to meeting you after you fly in and pay the security deposit.

    So you weren't contemplating it? What was the OP, automatic writing? So you're asking about something you haven't even thought about and that wouldn't involve any legal commitment on their part, sounds great, go for it.

    Absolutely.

    And once it's deposited we can move onto the next step in this fantastic once in a life time opportunity.

    Cold calling pensioners to get their credit card details. Sounds like fun. How are the commissions?

    Life is for the living, take a chance and have some new experiences. &, if things do go wrong, which is highly unlikely, you have us to support you...

    Whatever it is it will be a step up from TEFLing.
