ESLinsider TEFL Online Pro reviews scam.
TEFL/TESOL Scams

ESLinsider reviews and tefl online pro reviews online defamation.

ESLinsider reviews and tefl online pro reviews online defamation.

The following article highlights for our readers one of the dark underbellies of the Online TEFL/TESOL industry – online defamation. It specifically exposes one such specific example, regarding ESLinsider, and also looks at how we recommend you respond to online defamation should you also become a victim of this spineless (often anonymous) crime.

For any of you unaware of the meaning of ‘defamation’, it is when knowingly false material is published online and with the intent to harm someone’s reputation.

If you have stumbled upon this article, you might have arrived here by typing ‘TEFL Online Pro reviews’ into a search engine.

Listed in that search will be examples of verified customer reviews of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program, such as:

https://trustedteflreviews.com/category/tefl-online-pro-teachers-choice-award-winner-2019/

But among the genuine tefl online pro customer reviews, you will also see links claiming that tefl online pro is a scam, untrustworthy, a fraud – none of which have been written by anyone who has taken one of our courses.

Ian Leahy is the one-man-show owner of ESLinsider.

It was soon after when tefl online pro won the Teachers’ Choice Award, 2019, when we first noticed the Reddit and forum posts appearing – attacking tefl online pro with conspiracy theory slings of mud. At first, we didn’t really take much notice of them – they were so ridiculous that we brushed them off as prank posts.

But the false accusations grew over time and it has only recently been the case that we have been able to identify exactly who is behind the publication of this online abuse.

It is actually two schools – two of our Online TEFL/TESOL program competitors.

The first is MyTEFL.

We were not so shocked that the MyTEFL name was brought up, because they are notorious for creating attack (WordPress) websites on their competition. As an example, MyTEFL created an attack website on ESLinsider/Ian Leahy (whose YouTube channel mugshot features above) and we think that this is pretty low behavior from MyTEFL.

It was, therefore, a huge surprise to us that Ian Leahy began mimicking that low with his own defamation campaign against tefl online pro – attacks on Reddit, and attacks via his Online TEFL/TESOL school blog. And now (updated: 3rd September, 2020) with attacks via his YouTube channel.

The ESLinsider Online TEFL/TESOL program (shared apartment) Head Office – Fukuoka, Japan.

At first, we were dumbfounded as to why Ian Leahy would spend so much of his personal time focussed on trying to bring down a competitor. But then, we had a read of his Online TEFL/TESOL school blog – located on his official school website pages – and we plainly saw that Ian is a serial defamer. Pick any Online TEFL/TESOL certification course and Ian will have written some sort of trash about it online.

Why does he do this? What’s in it for him? Why waste the time on this unprofessional path?

Ian Leahy targets his competitors, because when he does so a post linking back to his school shows up in the Google results. Let’s take tefl online pro as this example. If you Google ‘TEFL Online Pro Reviews’ you see that Ian’s (ESLinsider) attack post is one of the first results for this Google search. This is because he has spent over two weeks now linking the article to other articles and posts that he has written on the internet. Ian is hoping that anyone who searches for tefl online pro reviews will click on his post, be directed to his school website (where the article is published) and then become convinced to take his course, instead of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course.

However, it looks as though people are becoming wise to this scraping-the-bottom-of-the-barrel tactic as is demonstrated in a recent ESLinsider customer review:

ESLinsider Online TEFL/TESOL course review – July 2020

Ian Leahy doesn’t just contain his defamation to website posts and articles published on his own school website though – he also spams his own YouTube channel with his relentless conspiracy theories.

According to Ian Leahy, tefl online pro is ‘FAKE’!

Published on 12th July, 2020, this video is like watching one of Ian’s greatest hits – with tefl online pro being his latest fixation.

It was because Ian obviously thinks that he can get away with online defamation with impunity – spreading false allegations in the hope of winning new customers for his own program – that we decided that enough was enough.

We began by issuing a Cease and Desist formal notice to Ian, via our company email address and a copy of this was published as a private message to Ian, on his YouTube channel. When Ian responded as though he could write whatever he wanted to, without consequences, we contacted YouTube and requested that the video be blocked in Japan – Ian’s current home country.

As you can see from the email screenshot above, YouTube also have a zero tolerance policy regarding Ian Leahy’s online defamation.

We feel that it needs to be pointed out here that Ian Leahy has been accused of faking ESLinsider customer reviews. We can’t comment on this accusation, because we don’t have any proof of this. Besides, we are far too busy – focussed on our customers – to even consider spending time investigating whether this accusation is true or not. What is clear though, is that Ian prefers to have full total control over his customer reviews and that the largest source for ESLinsider reviews are on the ESLinsider school website, where every customer but one has left a 5-star review of his program – which doesn’t seem fishy at all, right?

The only other “reviews” that we found of the ESLinsider Online TEFL/TESOL program are a few Quora posts, all claiming that ‘ESLinsider is legit’ and all (recently) written within days of each other. We searched for the ESLinsider Facebook page – an excellent source of verified customer reviews – but couldn’t locate a page for ESLinsider. On Trusted TEFL Reviews, ESLinsider just have the one (2-star) customer review.

ESLinsider.com fake 5-star reviews.
The chief source of ESLinsider reviews is on the ESLinsider school website.

So, what should you do if you find yourself a victim of online defamation?

If the information being spread is false, and if you know who is spreading the untrue rumour(s) then call the person/people out. It might not prevent them from continuing on their sick campaign, but it will let other people be made aware of the larger picture.

And if you do have access to a company lawyer, as we do, then we advise taking the legal route. It might seem expensive at first, and it might take some time to receive closure, but when that closure comes it will be worth it – both in terms of protecting your company name, and making the person/people think twice about doing the same thing to other people in future.

Despite the actions of MYTEFL and ESLinsider, we wish both companies all the best.

Verified TESOL Course Testimonials.

Verified TESOL Course testimonials. This article looks at where our customer reviews are predominantly published, and the red-flag Online TEFL/TESOL review tactics of some of our competitors that should be taken with a generous pinch of salt.

To begin this article, it should be made clear that we welcome both positive and negative feedback of our services. Of course, it would be great if every review that we received was a five-star review. But life doesn’t work that way. You can’t please all of the customers, all of the time. And actually, a negative review is often a positive for us – negative reviews can possibly indicate to us where there is further room for improvement, so that we can develop as a company and develop in the delivery of our customer services.

We will start, with the review websites that we recognize as being trusted sources of TEFL/TESOL student and graduate feedback.

Facebook is an excellent platform, where potential customers can read verified reviews of TEFL Online Pro students and graduates.

One of the major benefits of Facebook reviews, is that you can read a review and then check the poster’s Facebook profile; seeing whether the reviewer has a Facebook history and, therefore, if it is a legitimate review. This is arguably the best medium with which to tell if a reviewer is a real person, who has actually taken a tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course.

Some examples of recent verified reviews posted on our company Facebook page, by students and graduates of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course program:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/teflonlinepro/reviews/

Trusted TEFL Reviews is a similarly excellent source of verified reviews of tefl online pro students and graduates.

According to Trusted TEFL Reviews, the owners of the website are a group of English teachers (based in Vienna, Europe) who set up the website in order to clean up the Online TEFL/TESOL reviews industry. It is a non profit website, so this avoids the grey area corruption that is prevalent in some of the other major Online TEFL/TESOL review websites.

Students and graduates of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program, who have left reviews on Trusted TEFL Reviews, have reported back to us that in order for their review to be published they had to prove course attendance – submitting a copy of their international TEFL/TESOL certificate.

Trusted TEFL Reviews also allows Online TEFL/TESOL schools to respond to reviews.

We also list some of the more recent tefl online pro reviews, published on Trusted TEFL Reviews, in the ‘TEFL Online Pro Reviews’ section of this website:

https://tefl-online-pro-reviews.com/verified-tefl-tesol-customer-course-reviews/

And now, we need to take a look at the dark underbelly of Online TEFL/TESOL reviews.

There are two main ways in which some Online TEFL/TESOL companies manipulate their company reviews, in order to present a far rosier picture than what is true in reality.

The first way in which some companies artificially increase their review ratings, is by writing the reviews themselves and publishing them on websites that lack a verified review process. Another option for these unscrupulous companies, is to pay people (people who most likely haven’t taken one of their courses) to write reviews for them. One way of telling if a company is involved in this tactic is if they receive a bunch of reviews all at the same time – such as ten in one day.

The second way is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a form of fake reviews corruption, and it is a big problem within the Online TEFL/TESOL industry. Some of the more popular Online TEFL/TESOL reviews websites work on this principle. They encourage Online TEFL/TESOL schools to add a listing on their website, and they then receive an affiliates fee when a sale has been made. The issue with these types of review websites is that they often delete negative reviews, because it is bad business for their affiliate marketing model.

Affiliate marketing is also prevalent among bloggers who finance their world travels by claiming that such and such a course was AMAZING, and then they cream off the affiliate income when new customers use their coupon code when purchasing a course. It just isn’t possible to be objective about a product when the incentive for a blogger is to market it for their own financial gain.

So next time you read what appears to be a five-star review, shouting the praises of an Online TEFL/TESOL certification program, try checking to see whether there is an ulterior motive hidden behind the seemingly innocent review.

One thing that you can be certain of is that all tefl online pro reviews, published on Facebook and Trusted TEFL Reviews, have been written by actual students and graduates of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program.

We never waste our time trying to plant student and graduate reviews on unverified review websites, and we make it a principle not to add our school listing to review website that work on the affiliate marketing business model.

We hope that you enjoyed this Verified TESOL Course Testimonials article!

Teachers' Choice Award, 2020
Teachers' Choice Award

Teachers’ Choice Award winner, 2020

tefl online pro – Teachers’ Choice Award winner, 2020.

Earlier this week, we received the fantastic news that tefl online pro has won the Teachers’ Choice Award for a second year in a row.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for choosing to take their international Online TEFL/TESOL certification with teflonlinepro.com.

Throughout the year, to celebrate this milestone in our company history, we will be offering a number of course discounts. Therefore, please check the Discounts page on teflonlinepro.com when purchasing your tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL course in case we are running a promotion at that time.

There was also great news this week regarding the phased opening up of countries in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, the majority of European countries belonging to the Schengen Area have begun opening up their borders to international visitors.

It is also looking very likely that the majority of Asian nations are also going to be open for business from August/September onwards.

Currently, as things stand on June 26th, US citizens are prevented from traveling because of the high rate of infections in the country. However, we see this decision being overturned by the end of August as the number of infections (hopefully) begin decreasing.

In the meantime, our customers from the US (as well as our customers from other countries that are in a national lockdown) are choosing to teach English online.

The subject of travel nicely segues into the theme of teaching English abroad.

As the world does begin opening up, it will soon be possible again to get on a plane and head off overseas to teach English. And as a way of celebrating the freedom of travel, we want to share with you now some of the most popular Teach English Abroad articles – all taken from the teflonlinepro.com Blog:
